    Question Nexplanon
    Medical Coding Books
    We are going to start using this in our office. I have never billed it though. I was wondering which cpt/dx to use? The paperwork I got shows surgical codes 11981/11982/11983 and j7307 with dx of v25.5/v25.43/v45.52. I would just like to be sure so I thought OB/Gyn could help me. Thanks ladies!!

    11981 for the insertion encounter / V25.5 dx code
    11982 for removal encounter / V25.43 dx code
    11983 if it is removed and a new one placed in the same encounter / V25.5 and V25.43 dx codes

    V45.52 is basically a status code meaning it's incidental to whatever the primary service is (i.e. well woman exam/pap). I would not use this with any of the above CPT codes.

    Hope that helps
