Acquiring a Gestational Surrogacy Program License

Applying for a gestational surrogacy program license is accomplished by first establishing or having an existing HCS account.

Access to an HCS Account is an essential step in the licensure process.

  • For organizations that are not currently affiliated with the HCS, please contact the NYSDOH Gestational Surrogacy Program (GSP) to assist your organization with creating an HCS user account. They can be reached at:
  • Existing HCS account holders still need to contact the GSP to link their current account to the Gestational Surrogacy Organization. Please note, if you have an issue with an existing account, please contact Commerce Accounts Management Unit (CAMU) at:

Once an organization has an established HCS account they may begin the application process. To request an application packet, please email the Gestational Surrogacy Program at:
