    If a pt has a tubal logation for requested sterilization what would be a good dx code?

    Thanks

    V25.2=This is the principal diagnosis used when a patient comes in to have elective surgery for tubal ligation or vasectomy. It may also be assigned as a secondary diagnosis when a tubal ligation is performed on a woman at the same time as admission for delivery.

    Post Status=V26.51

    What code would you use for the male who comes in requesting voluntary sterilization? V25.2 is for admission. Would you use V65.40? Thanks
