Correct Coding – Incorrect Use of HCPCS Code K0108 To Bill for a Wheel Lock Brake Extension for Manual Wheelchairs

DME MAC Joint Publication

Recent reports have identified that suppliers are billing Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) code K0108 (WHEELCHAIR COMPONENT OR ACCESSORY, NOT OTHERWISE SPECIFIED) for wheel lock brake extension handle used on manual wheelchairs.  Suppliers must not use this miscellaneous code when billing for wheel lock brake extension handles.  The correct code to bill is:

E0961 - MANUAL WHEELCHAIR ACCESSORY, WHEEL LOCK BRAKE EXTENSION (HANDLE), EACH

For questions about correct coding, contact the Pricing, Data Analysis, and Coding (PDAC) contractor at (877) 735-1326 during the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. CT, Monday through Friday, or e-mail the PDAC by completing the DME PDAC Contact Form available on the website www.dmepdac.com External Website.
