coding IUD follow ups

    Default coding IUD follow ups

    I understand how to code for IUD placement, but is there a global period where follow ups to check IUD status are no charge office visits? Or may a physician bill for follow up visits to make sure the IUD is still in place correctly?
    thank you

    Yes you can bill. You would bill a preventative care code 99401-99404 with
    V25.42--checking, reinsertion or removal of IUD.
