What state do you live in? There are very few states that cover anything related to IF generally, and even fewer that cover anything for DE -- and almost none that cover the medical screening of a prospective donor.

Illinois is the only state I am aware of that covers the retrieval and U/S costs for the donor. Massachusetts might have some coverage.

Default how to code for donor ivf

There are procedure codes and then you need to add cpt codes for donor.

You can use procedure code 58970 - retrieval.
Then add donor code V59.71 (this means annomyous donor, under 35).

There are codes for over 35 or known donors (google cpt codes for donor ooctye and you'll find them).

I assume you're trying to find out from your insurance if it's covered, so if they cover the largest cost (retrieval) then you can assume it's all covered.

Good luck!
