NY to Provide at Cost Medicaid Reimbursement for Long-Acting Reversible Contraception (LARC)
ACOG DII is excited to announce that New York will become the 5th state in the country to provide at cost Medicaid reimbursement for long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) when provided as an inpatient post-partum service. This includes all IUDs and contraceptive implants. DII has secured new carve out reimbursement codes that will be retroactive to April 1, 2014 dates of service. Click here to access the NYSDOH eMed announcement for the codes.
DII has been working with the New York State and the New York City Departments of Health for over a year to address barriers to the utilization of LARC, specifically the cost and lack of reimbursement. We will continue to urge the managed care plans to accept the new reimbursement codes and to obtain CMS approval for reimbursement of LARC devices immediately post-abortion.
