New Codes for Ventilator Billing!

Did you know that there are new Healthcare Common Procedure Coding (HCPC) codes for ventilator reimbursement in 2016? Beginning January 1, 2016, there were 2 new HCPC codes for ventilators: E0465 and E0466. E0465 is for invasive ventilators (i.e., via trach) and E0466 is for non-invasive ventilators. These 2 new codes have replaced the previous 5 HCPC codes that were used to bill ventilators. E0465 replaces old codes E0450 and E0463. E0466 replaces old codes E0460, E0461 and E0464. Be sure that you have updated your active rental claims to include the new HCPC code and allowable fee schedule.
