Correct Coding - Incorrect Use of HCPCS Code K0108 To Bill for Wheelchair Ventilator Tray
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 ventilator tray. This miscellaneous code is not the correct code to use for billing. The correct code to bill is either:
- E1029 WHEELCHAIR ACCESSORY, VENTILATOR TRAY, FIXED or
- E1030 WHEELCHAIR ACCESSORY, VENTILATOR TRAY, GIMBALED
Refer to the Wheelchair Options and Accessories LCD and related Policy Article for additional information.
