Long-Acting Reversible Contraception (LARC) Quick Coding Guide

Coding for Contraceptive Implant and IUDs

Basic IUD Coding

Most IUD services will be linked to a diagnosis code from the Z30.01- (encounter for initial prescription of contraceptives) and Z30.43- (encounter for surveillance of intrauterine contraceptive device) series.

  • Z30.014 Encounter for initial prescription of intrauterine contraceptive device
    This code includes the initial prescription of the IUD,  counseling, and advice, but excludes the IUD insertion
  • Z30.430 Encounter for insertion of intrauterine contraceptive device
  • Z30.431 Encounter for routine checking of intrauterine contraceptive device
  • Z30.432 Encounter for removal of intrauterine contraceptive device
  • Z30.433 Encounter for removal and reinsertion of intrauterine contraceptive device

Intrauterine devices include the copper IUD and the hormonal IUDs. The insertion and/or removal of IUDs are reported using one of the following CPT codes:

  • 58300 Insertion of IUD
  • 58301 Removal of IUD

CPT procedure codes do not include the cost of the supply. Report the supply separately using a HCPCS code:

  • J7296 Levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine contraceptive system (Kyleena®), 19.5 mg (5 year duration)
  • J7297 Levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine contraceptive system (Liletta®), 52 mg (6 year duration)
  • J7298 Levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine contraceptive system (Mirena®), 52 mg (6 year duration)
