- You must have a visit with a provider for counseling and to determine which IUD you choose to have inserted. You will also need to have c cultures done at this visit. You will also need to read and understand all educational information concerning the IUD.
- You will need to contact your insurance company to determine if they will cover the cost of the IUD. Please use the following codes when discussing coverage: Mirena IUD J73.02, Paraguard IUD J7300, and insertion code 58300. When insurance coverage or lack of coverage is established, you may call for an appointment.
- You will need to schedule this appointment during your menstrual cycle (preferably between days 1-7). If you do not get regular menstrual cycles, a pregnancy test will be done prior to insertion and you will need to abstain from intercourse (even protected intercourse) for two weeks prior to insertion.
- You will need to have had an annual exam with a pap smear before the IUD can be inserted.
Please note that all of the above steps will need to be completed before we can actually order the IUD. It may also take a few days to a week to receive the IUD, so it may take more than one menstrual cycle to have the IUD inserted. The insurance company reimbursement for the IUD must at least cover our cost of the IUD. If the total cost of the IUD is not fully covered, we may not be able to insert the IUD.
