Mirena IUD - is it a supply or a drug?

  1. Default Mirena IUD - is it a supply or a drug?
    Medical Coding Books
    I'm in California and am wondering if the Mirena IUD is considered a drug or a supply/device. I was told by someone to code it as J7302 a supply but my supervisor is telling me it's a drug. Can anyone help???

    The correct code for Mirena is J7302, it is a small piece of plastic (to me that is a supply) that is placed by a provider and it releases small amounts of hormones into the body.

    Default I Agree
    A Mirena IUD is a supply with a hormone in it. It is coded J7302

    J codes are "drugs administered other than oral method" per HCPCS. In this case you have the supply AND the drug combined.
