    AAPC: Back to School

    Has anyone ever used an ICD9 for a surrogate carrier? I can find pregnancy assisted by reproductive technology, but nothing specific for surrogate.

    Thanks in advance,

    I agree with V23.85 (Pregnancy resulting from assisted reproductive technology).
    Also depending on how it was done I would also use V26.1 ( Artificial insemination).
    And for the CPT codes I would use depending on how it was done, 59874( Embryo transfer, intrauterine) or 58976 ( Gamete, zygote, or embryo intrafallopian transfer, any method).

    Hope this helps.
