Kyleena HCPCS code

  1. Default Kyleena HCPCS code
    Medical Coding Books
    At our college health center, the recently introduced Kyleena™ (levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system) 19.5 mg has become a popular IUD choice. There has been no assignment of a specific HCPCS code and per a phone call to Bayer, may not be until 2018.

    We are having difficulty with preauthorization using Bayer’s suggested J3490, Unclassified drugs. We think perhaps S4989, Contraceptive intrauterine device (e.g., progestacert iud), including implants and supplies) would be the best alternative for coding. We are looking for anyone’s experience with preauthorization or claims for this product.

    Unlisted J3490 is the correct code. S code looks like it may work if the payer accepts them

    We have been using the generic J code, however, some Blue Cross Blue Shield Plans are giving us the run around with the code, to which they gave us the alternative of S4989. So, I guess it depends on the actual plan.

  5. Exclamation Kyleena -- Appropriate Code .....
    As a payer we are accepting S4989 - Contraceptive intrauterine device (e.g., Progestacert IUD), including implants and supplies .... this is the most appropriate code, not unlisted J3490.
