It is my understanding that you can bill insurance for the inseration but you need to use modifer 53 for discontinued service. You will most likely have to send the operative note. Depending on the pts insurance you also bill for the IUD itself. If insurance doesn't pay for this then the manufacture should give you another IUD to replace the one that didn't work since it was a quality issue on there part and not a pt issue. From my experience very few insurance companies will pay for IUD and the pt has to pay for it.
I hope this helps
