Correct Coding - Incorrect Use of HCPCS Code K0108 To Bill for Labor Charges
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 labor charges associated with repairs. Suppliers must not bill code K0108 when billing for repair labor charges. The correct code to bill for labor charges associated with wheelchair repairs is:
K0739 - REPAIR OR NONROUTINE SERVICE FOR DURABLE MEDICAL EQUIPMENT OTHER THAN OXYGEN EQUIPMENT REQUIRING THE SKILL OF A TECHNICIAN, LABOR COMPONENT, PER 15 MINUTES
