Greetings from SuperCoder.com!

 

There is no CPT code for removal of umbilical cord via forceps because it is included in the CPT code for postpartum care (eg. 59400) and should not be reported separately. If your case is somewhat different, please provide more information.

 

Please feel free to write if you have any concern or questions.

 

Thanks.
