From my understanding, coming from an auditors point of view, If the physician counseled the patient extensively about the infertility treatment options, which would indicate he went above and beyond the typical counseling that is involved with a well woman visit, that visit is billable. two things to keep in mind-
Time spent counseling has to be documented and preferably documented on a separate note from the well woman to differentiate the two.
Personally I would bill for the well woman, and if the patient has questions regarding infertility either briefly address them, or set up another office visit to address her concerns
Hope this helps,
