CMS adds accessory code

Tuesday, November 25, 2014

BALTIMORE – A new wheelchair accessory code, E2378 (power wheelchair component, actuator, replacement only) has been retroactively added to the group codes that were reclassified as the capped rental payment category, effective April 1, 2014. These codes can be billed as a purchase if used with a complex rehab wheelchair (K0835—K0864). If there is no indication that the E2378 is being used with a complex rehab wheelchair, it will be denied if billed as a purchase.
