I submitted a claim for contraceptive: (Date of servie 01/11/11)
11975 (Implanon insertion)
J7307 (IMpanon supply)
Medicare claims this an non-covered outpatient benefit. It used to paid before, but now it is a denied.
What should my next option be?

J7307 became effective January 1, 2008, it is listed as a status indicator "I" code. Status indicator "I" means that these codes are not covered by Medicare Part B. The code can be submitted to Medicare Part B for denial. This will allow services to be filed to the beneficiary's secondary insurance.
