The Division of Health Benefits of the NC Department of Health and Human Services is requesting North Carolina ob/gyns and primary care practices to help NC Medicaid better track prenatal and postpartum care access. Below is a notice from DHHS/DHB with a link to a survey asking about the use of F codes and feasibility of practices’ EHR incorporating these codes.


F Code Availability within EHRs to Support Measurement of Prenatal and Postpartum Care Visits

To better understand the number of NC Medicaid members receiving prenatal and postpartum care, NC Medicaid encourages providers to use two F codes: 0500F for Initial Prenatal Visits and 0503F for Postpartum Care Visits.

In an effort to determine whether a practice’s current Electronic Health Record (EHR) allows for the selection of the above codes, we are asking practices to complete a brief survey.

Survey: The survey is accessible here.

Deadline: Friday, October 20

Thank you for your assistance! If you have any questions, contact Hannah Fletcher at NC Medicaid via [email protected].
