Two New Codes Established for Miscellaneous Supplies
Original Effective Date: 01/01/2000
Revision Effective Date: 11/01/2013
A permanent Level II HCPCS Code, A9900, has been newly established to replace Level III Local Codes ZZ001, ZZ002, ZZ003, ZZ004, ZZ006, ZZ007, ZZ009, and ZZ011 as appropriate. The use of this code is to describe items that are components of other codes.
- A9900 - Miscellaneous supply, accessory, and/or service component of another HCPCS code
Also, in order to maintain the integrity of policy consideration, when billing the component items for orthotics and prosthetics, the newly established HCPCS Codes L9900 is to be utilized replacing HCPCS code ZZ005.
- L9900 - Orthotic and prosthetic supply, accessory and/or service component of another HCPCS "L" code.
Both of the above codes are effective for claims with dates of service on or after January 1, 2000 and will be denied with ANSI Reason Code 97 (Payment is included in the allowance for the basic service/procedure).
