Bi-lat Tubal consult

OB Patient was in to discuss having a bi-lateral tubalization after she delivers in July. Our provider chose dx V26.51 "tubalization sterilization status"; wouldn't that be for post procedure? What is the correct dx as the code book seems to say V25.2 is for "admission" (for procedure itself?).

Sincerely Confused,

What about V25.09 ?? General counseling & advice --> other --> Family planning advice

I would agree that V26.51 would be to record reproductive status after the procedure. Look at the contraceptive management/counseling code V25.09.
