Correct Coding - Incorrect Use of HCPCS Code K0108 To Bill for a Privacy Flap
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 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
For questions about correct coding, contact the Pricing, Data Analysis, and Coding (PDAC) contractor at (877) 735-1326 during the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. CT, Monday through Friday, or e-mail the PDAC by completing the DME PDAC Contact Form available on the website www.dmepdac.com.
