Maternity / Obstetrical Billing
My hospital is restricting the number of people in the OR because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Can I still bill 14109 for management of labour and postnatal care associated with emergency caesarean section if this restriction prevents me from attending the c-section?
Yes, MSP has confirmed that you can bill 14109 in this circumstance.
Can I provide and bill a 14090 prenatal visit – complete examination by Telehealth without doing a physical examination?
No, 14090 requires a physical examination and, therefore, must be done in-person. While 14090 is often billed for the first prenatal visit, you can bill it at a subsequent prenatal visit, if that is when you see the patient in-person and conduct the physical examination.
Perinatal Services BC has created recommendations for the schedule of prenatal visits during the COVID-19 pandemic.
