    ​​Hello,

    If the provider removes the nexplanon from one location and reinserts it in another location, do you still code 11983 ( removal with reinsertion)?

    Thank you,

    Brooke Mason

    I would think so, unless its a different arm. You could use a modifier if it's a different arm.
