I. Billing Requirements for Intermediaries
Claims for HBO therapy should be submitted on Form CMS-1450 or its electronic equivalent.
a. Applicable Bill Types
The applicable hospital bill types are 11X, 13X and 85X.
b. Procedural Coding
99183 – Physician attendance and supervision of hyperbaric oxygen therapy, per session.

C1300 – Hyperbaric oxygen under pressure, full body chamber, per 30-minute interval.
NOTE: Code C1300 is not available for use other than in a hospital outpatient department.
For hospital inpatients and critical access hospitals (CAHs) not electing Method I, HBO therapy is reported under revenue code 940 without any HCPCS code. For inpatient services, show ICD-9-CM procedure code 93.59.
