Is there a supply code for a bandage contact lens that I can bill to Medicare? Do we need to register with Medicare as a supplier to bill? How does this work?

The supply code for a bandage contact lens is CPT 99070. However, CMS lists CPT 99070 as a "B" bundled code with 0 relative value units on Physician Fee Schedule. "B" status indicates that 99070 is a bundled code. In other words, Medicare bundles payment for "B" status codes into payment for other services not specified. Hope it helps.
