    Governing Rules:

    • 4.13.2

      If a physician performs the delivery and resuscitates the infant, HSC 13.99F may be claimed in addition to a delivery benefit.

    • 6.1

      If a physician performs a minor procedure and provides a service warranting a claim for an office visit or a home visit on the same day, benefits for both may be claimed only if the services and diagnoses are unrelated.

    • 6.2

      If a service is provided in a hospital emergency department, AACC or UCC, only the minor procedure or the visit benefit, whichever is the greater, may be claimed, unless the problems are emergencies and the diagnoses are unrelated.

    • 6.7.1

      If a minor procedure (M or M+) is provided with a hospital visit on the same day, only the greater benefit HSC may be claimed.

    • 8.1.5

      When a delivery occurs within 24 hours of admission, the delivery benefit includes the hospital admission (HSC 03.04C) or hospital visit (03.03D). Post-partum hospital visits, by the same or different physician, for the period of one week after the delivery, and ordinary immediate care of the newborn are also included. When there is a life threatening situation which requires neonatal resuscitation, HSC 13.99F may be claimed as well.
