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