Correct Coding - Incorrect Use of HCPCS Code K0108 To Bill for a Privacy Flap


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 privacy flap. A privacy flap is material that covers the gap between the wheelchair back and the wheelchair seat or seat cushion. This miscellaneous code is not the correct code to use for billing. The correct code to bill is:

A9270 - NONCOVERED ITEM OR SERVICE
