ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Codes Erroneously Denied for Minor Consent Program Claims

January 18, 2016

The Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) identified a claims processing issue causing Minor Consent Program claims for the following ICD-10-CM diagnosis codes to erroneously deny:

Code Description
Z30.014 Encounter for initial prescription of intrauterine contraceptive device
Z30.432 Encounter for removal of intrauterine contraceptive device
Z30.433 Encounter for removal and reinsertion of intrauterine contraceptive device
Z97.5 Presence of (intrauterine) contraceptive device

DHCS has corrected this issue. Providers should continue to submit claims in a timely manner. Affected claims will be reprocessed via an Erroneous Payment Correction (EPC). Providers are encouraged to check the Medi-Cal website regularly for updates.
