Long acting reversible contraception use in adolescent and young adult military dependent females and active duty service member
This study evaluated existing Military Health Care records (M2 database) for coding related to long acting reversible contraception (LARC). Its aim was to better understand current use and continuation rates of various forms of LARC. CPT codes for device insertions were found for de-identified individuals and followed over time until a removal code was found, insurance lapsed, or the study ended over a 72 month period. IUD continuation rates are similar. Implantable contraceptive was continued longer than IUD options. Single individuals were more likely to continue LARC use compared to married individuals. ^
