Correct Coding - Incorrect Use of HCPCS Code K0108 To Bill for a Drive Wheel Gear Box
Recent reports have identified that suppliers are billing Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) code K0108 (WHEELCHAIR COMPONENT OR ACCESSORY, NOT OTHERWISE SPECIFIED) for a drive wheel gear box. This miscellaneous code is not the correct code to use for billing. The correct code to bill is:
- E2369 POWER WHEELCHAIR COMPONENT, DRIVE WHEEL GEAR BOX, REPLACEMENT ONLY.
Refer to the Wheelchair Options and Accessories LCD and related Policy Article for additional information.
For questions about correct coding, contact the Pricing, Data Analysis and Coding (PDAC) Contact Center or email the PDAC by completing the DME PDAC Contact Form. See the Contact Us webpage for details.
