Coding for Long-Acting Reversible Contraception: Billing Quiz Series

About the Quiz Series

Correct coding can result in more appropriate compensation for services. To help practices master coding for the contraceptive implant and intrauterine devices (IUDs), ACOG's Long-Acting Reversible Contraception (LARC) Program, in collaboration with the ACOG Coding Department, has developed this updated billing quiz for LARC methods. The scenarios and answers offer examples of possible appropriate coding in a variety of situations, and their inclusion is not meant to imply that they are the only clinical solutions or correct coding for a particular scenario.

The information included in this guide is current as of May 9, 2018.

For more information about the LARC Program and additional LARC coding and clinical resources, go to ACOG Fellows and their staff can submit specific coding questions to the ACOG Department of Health Economics’ coding ticket database at or by fax to (202) 484-7480. Questions are answered in the order received, usually within 1-3 weeks. There is no charge for this service, but no more than three questions per practice are to be submitted each month.
