Correct Coding – Incorrect Use of HCPCS Code K0108 To Bill for a Wheelchair Headrest
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.
