Does my insurance cover the Paragard IUD?



If you have health insurance:

Paragard is fully covered under most insurance plans—this may mean no co-pay, deductible or out-of-pocket costs. Check with your insurance provider to confirm coverage related to your individual plan. Fees for the Paragard placement procedure may apply.

Here’s how to check:

  1. Call the customer service number on the back of your insurance card
  2. Tell them that Paragard is a healthcare provider-administered method of birth control
  3. Ask them to check if Paragard is covered under the Affordable Care Act
  4. Provide them with the J code for Paragard, which is J7300
  5. Ask if you will have any out-of-pocket costs, or if Paragard is only partially covered under your plan

If your medical insurance says that Paragard is not covered as a medical benefit, then it may be covered as a pharmacy benefit. To check if it’s covered as a pharmacy benefit, call the customer service number on the back of your prescription card.

If your health insurance doesn’t cover Paragard or you don’t have health insurance
If you don’t have insurance, or if your insurance doesn’t cover Paragard, you may self-pay for Paragard through one of our specialty pharmacy partners.
