This policy describes the medical necessity requirements for performing fetal surgery. This becomes an option when it is predicted that there will be severe disability, or if it is predicted that the fetus will not live long enough to survive delivery or after birth.1 Therefore, surgical intervention during pregnancy on the fetus is meant to correct problems that would be too advanced to correct after birth.  

Annual review and revision. Criteria I.G.3. updated to include confirmation on fetal MRI. Added clarifying language to Criteria I.G.4. Added CPT code 59072. ICD-10 codes removed.
