    Default IUD x2

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hello everyone,

    my physician was inserting IUD (J7300) and something didnt go as planed during the insertion. IUD did not hold. So she took ANOTHER device (IUD#2) and tried to insert it. Everything went ok. IUD in place, confirmed by sono. All of this was done on the same day. We usually bill 58300/j7300/76830.
    NOW the Q:
    How do i bill IUD x2.
    Should I bill J7300 and 58300 twice w/ some modifier???

    Thanks in advance!!!!

    We have had the same situation occur and we normally will go ahead and bill the IUD x 2. It has been our experience that if we have a failure of a device, the manufacturer will replace it if the insurance doesn't cover it. So, we then take the denial for proof of non-payment and the manufacturer sends us a replacement.

    You would only bill the 58300 once.
