Correct coding can result in more appropriate compensation for services. To help practices master coding for the contraceptive implant and intrauterine devices (IUDs), the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists’ 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. Quiz yourself and test your coding knowledge by first reviewing and trying to code each scenario. Answers, developed by coding experts, are provided after each scenario.
