Embryo Transfer Procedure with Ultrasound Guidance
What is the most appropriate CPT code to use for ultrasound guidance during an embryo transfer procedure?
Ultrasound guidance may be reported in conjunction with other procedures, when appropriate, with CPT code 76998, Ultrasonic guidance, intraoperative. When reporting code 76998, if there is no hard copy or stored digital image of the ultrasound, the service is not billable. An ultrasound report in the medical record is also required in order to bill this code. Without the hard copy image or the report, the service is not separately billable.
