Correct Coding - Incorrect Use of HCPCS Code K0108 to Bill for a Wheelchair Headrest
DME MAC Joint Publication
Posted on July 5, 2018
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 wheelchair headrest. This miscellaneous code is not the correct code to use for billing. The correct code to bill is:
E0955 WHEELCHAIR ACCESSORY, HEADREST, CUSHIONED, ANY TYPE, INCLUDING FIXED MOUNTING HARDWARE, EACH.
Refer to the Wheelchair Seating LCD and related Policy Articles for additional information.
