Notes:

Payment rules:
1. P001 is only eligible for payment if the length of gestation is confirmed by ultrasound.
2. Services described as consultations, assessments or counselling (and those procedures that are generally accepted components of this service, including cervical ripening and oxytocin infusion if rendered) are not eligible for payment when rendered the same day to the same patient by the same physician as P001.
