How to bill IUD that refuses to stay in

    One of our OB/GYN's attempted to place a Mirena and the darn thing wouldn't stay in. The Mirena came from our Medical Assistance stockpile, but can we bill for an attempted placement with a 52 or 53 modifier or do we just bill out a level visit? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    You can bill for the procedure 58300 with a 53 modifier and bill for the IUD as it is unusable. You might check w/ your IUD rep as they might be able to provide a replacement.

    Thank you very much. We'll give that a try. We can contact our MA rep as I believe the IUD came from MA.

    Thanks again.
