Thread: IUD and Ultrasound

  1. #1

    Default IUD and Ultrasound

    AAPC: Back to School
    IUD was placed and TV/US was done to confirm placement due to her uterus being deviated right laterally. IUD was removed because it was found in the lower uterine segment and lower cervix.

    She came back 3 days later for placement again.
    This time the provider billed
    76376 denied for dx V25.1
    76830 denied for dx V25.1

    Is there a better dx we could use? I was thinking that due to her anatomy there was an issue.
    Please advise.

    I don't have my HCPCS book with me. I think J7300 is paraguard (Copper T) and J7302 Mirena. Does your doctor writes Mirena on the chart Or just IUD inserted.
