    Default IUD removal and Medicare

    Promo: Code Books
    I have not been able to recieve payment for Medicare for the removal of an IUD in the office or at the OR. Does anyone have any information on it and would they need an ABN if it is not.

    Why was the IUD removed? Expired? Pt wants to get pregant? If the pt wanted to get pregnant, CMS does not cover that. If there is a problem or it's time to remove and insert a new one, they do cover that.
