Thread: Coding for Gestational Carrier

    Default Coding for Gestational Carrier

    AAPC: Back to School
    Good Morning,
    I have been asked how to code for a gestational carrier, is there a specific diagnosis code for the gestational carrier? Are there any related CPT codes?
    This is something that comes up in my work but not very often.

    Default Gestational carriers

    We use v26.89- other specified procreative management. Since I work for an infertility center , when we do infertility testing we use dx code v26.89 inconjunction with v26.21- infertility testing. If you are coding for the embryo transfer for a GC then you would use all applicable codes that you would use for a regular IVF transfer and related services.
