Correct coding can result in more appropriate compensation for services and devices. To help practices receive appropriate payment for providing the contraceptive implant and intrauterine devices (IUDs), ACOG's Long-Acting Reversible Contraception (LARC) Program, in collaboration with the ACOG Coding Department, has prepared this updated quick reference guide to coding for LARC methods.
The information included in this guide is current as of May 9, 2018.
For more information about the LARC Program and coding for LARC methods, go to acog.org/larc. ACOG Fellows and their staff can submit specific coding questions to the ACOG Department of Health Economics’ coding ticket database at acogcoding.freshdesk.com 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.
