When coding for a IUD system (J7302), would I need to add a modifier 51 on the insertion code 58300? and would I also use modifier 51 when we use 58300(insertion) and 58301 (removal)?
 
The J7302 (which I do not see in HCPCS, there is J7297(Liletta), J7298(Mirena), J7300(Paragard) and J7301(Skyla)) would be just the device being inserted, if you are just charging 58300 for insertion, you would not need a modifier. If you are doing both removal and insertion, you would use modifier 51 on the second listed CPT code.

Hope this makes sense.

Thanks so much and yes I do see that J7302 has been deleted and we are using J7298.
 
if the insertion is at the same time of the removal, you would add mod 51 to the removal.
 
Hi, when an insertion is performed with a removal, add modifier 51 to the removal only.
