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 replacement of wheelchair seat and back upholstery. This miscellaneous code is not the correct code to use for billing. The correct codes to bill are:
E0981 WHEELCHAIR ACCESSORY, SEAT UPHOLSTERY, REPLACEMENT ONLY, EACH
E0982 WHEELCHAIR ACCESSORY, BACK UPHOLSTERY, REPLACEMENT ONLY, EACH
Refer to the Wheelchair Options and Accessories LCD and related Policy Article for additional information.
