    I'm a little confused as to the correct CPT to use for the Cervical Length
    our Prenatal Dept. is new to getting pre-cert and auths.
    Is the CPT 76817 correct?

    Did they do a transvaginal to report the 76817? And what is the gestational age? Look at the 76801-76805

    According to ACOG, CPT 76817 may include
    1) Evaluation of the embryo(s) & gestational sac(s)
    2) Evaluation of the maternal uterus, adnexa, and/or cervix
    Hope this helps.

    Not sure if they did a transvaginal because we were checking benefits for the patient.
    Thank you
