Can you get paid for IUD placement with the annual physical?

At our facility we add a mod -25 to the IUD placement as long as it is linked to a separate diagnosis. If the patient is seen specifically for the placement of the IUD usually the lesser of the two charges are paid.

A 25 modifier should never be used on anything but an E&M code. In this case as long as there are two distinct services you would append 25 to the well code.
