IVF Consent Counseling

When a patient is scheduled to undergo IVF and the provider schedules the patient for a 30-minute consultation to sign consents and discuss risks associated with in vitro fertilization, ovarian stimulation, and oocyte retrieval, is this visit billable, or should it be included in the global charge for the IVF?

When programs bill IVF under a global fee, they traditionally apply a single fee to cover all services in a routine IVF cycle. Centers that bill with a global fee are typically not using CPT codes, so the rules of CPT may not apply.
