Thread: ultrasound guidance of IUD removal

  1. #1

    Default ultrasound guidance of IUD removal

    AAPC: Back to School
    If ultrasound is used to locate an IUD for removal is there a code to bill for the ultrasound guidance. Should it be billed along with the IUD removal code 58301? Or is there a more accurate code?

    We do have code 76998 (ultrasonic guidance, intraoperative), but not sure of the payment process, check with your local insurance whether they cover the intraoperative guidance.
