    Default Abnormal position of IUD

    Promo: Code Books
    Would like some input from my peers on how I am coding this:

    Pt's IUD is laying sideways in the uterine cavity and one end is embedded into the right lower endometrium.

    Diagnoses: 1. Abnormal position of intrauterine device
    2. Pelvic pain, acute

    Procedure: Hysteroscopy and removal of mal-positioned IUD. (Done as outpt at hosp)

    This is what I want to code:
    996.32 and 625.9 with procedure code 58562.

    I do not want to add 58301 because I think that is accounted for in 58562. Would it hurt if I also added V25.12 as another diagnosis?

    Thanks for any input on this!

    Looks like you have it down! I would put the V25.12 as the last dx code. You are right the hysteroscopy takes care of the removal so you would not use 58301.
