How much will Mirena cost me?

95% of women were covered for a Bayer IUD, like Mirena, with little or no out-of-pocket costs (based on past benefit investigation submissions to Bayer in 2017).


The Affordable Care Act (ACA) generally requires health plans to cover FDA-approved birth control, including intrauterine devices (IUDs), at low or no cost to the patient (eg, co-payment, coinsurance). Depending on the specific health insurance plan, patients may still be responsible for the cost of the product and/or product-related costs, such as insertion or removal procedure fees.

How to check if your insurance will cover Mirena

  1. Call the phone number on the back of your insurance card
  2. Tell them that Mirena is a healthcare provider‐administered method of birth control

  4. Provide them with the J code for Mirena: J7298; and the Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) code for Mirena placement: 58300

Mirena® (levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system) is a hormone-releasing IUD that prevents pregnancy for up to 8 years. Mirena also treats heavy periods for up to 5 years in women who choose intrauterine contraception.



  • If you have a pelvic or genital infection, get infections easily, or have certain cancers, don't use Mirena. Less than 1% of users get a serious pelvic infection called pelvic inflammatory disease (PID).
  • If you have persistent pelvic or stomach pain, or excessive bleeding after placement, tell your healthcare provider (HCP). If Mirena comes out, call your HCP and avoid intercourse or use non-hormonal back-up birth control (such as condoms or spermicide). Mirena may go into or through the wall of the uterus and cause other problems.
  • Pregnancy while using Mirena is uncommon but can be life threatening and may result in loss of pregnancy or fertility.

  • Ovarian cysts may occur but usually disappear.
  • Bleeding and spotting may increase in the first 3 to 6 months and remain irregular. Periods over time usually become shorter, lighter, or may stop.


Mirena does not protect against HIV or STIs.


Only you and your HCP can decide if Mirena is right for you. Mirena is available by prescription only.
