Kyleena Supply Coding
Question: What is the appropriate HCPCS supply code to report Kyleena (levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system) 19.5 mg?
Answer: Kyleena™ is an intrauterine device (IUD) that releases a continuous low dose of hormones to prevent pregnancy for up to five years. Insertion of an IUD into the uterus by a healthcare provider is a nonsurgical procedure. According to the manufacturer, Bayer, Kyleena™ may be covered at no cost under the Affordable Care Act.
The HCPCS code set introduced a new code to report Kyleena™ in 2018: J7296 Levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine contraceptive system (Kyleena), 19.5 mg. Do not report temporary code Q9984, which was discontinued as of January 1, 2018.
