PTK

How can we bill S0812? Can we receive the payment from Insurance company for this code? How does it work?

Hi,

With an S code, you have a standardized descriptor, and the carrier has a standardized payment policy on that code." The S codes, according to the HCPCS manual, are used "to report drugs, services and supplies for which there are no national codes but for which codes are needed by the private sector.

Some people will pay with the HCPCS code, and some don't recognize it. I would recommend checking with the payer to see if it will reimburse for PTK and which code it prefers.

Thanks
