Correct Coding - Incorrect Use of HCPCS Code K0108 To Bill for Anti-Tip Devices for Manual Wheelchairs


Recent reports have identified that suppliers are billing Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) code K0108 (WHEELCHAIR COMPONENT OR ACCESSORY, NOT OTHERWISE SPECIFIED) for anti-tip devices used on manual wheelchairs. Suppliers must not bill this miscellaneous code for anti-tipping devices. The correct code to bill is:

E0971 - MANUAL WHEELCHAIR ACCESSORY, ANTI-TIPPING DEVICE, EACH
