Hello...patient has imbedded iud, doc removed with polyp forceps and reinserted a new one. I don't know whether to code v25.13 encounter for insertion and removal of iud or 996.32 mechanical complication of iud. Any opinions appreciated...
Thanks

I would code both. I figure you're telling a story....patient is coming in to remove and replace because of a mechanical complication of the IUD.

*Disclaimer ---thats just how I would code it.
