Hello. I am currently studying for exam and I am confused about G-codes. Are G-codes in HCPCS the only codes you can use for Medicare? If a patient has an insurance other than Medicare, can you still use G-codes? Thank you.

G-codes are not the only codes that are reported for Medicare patients.

Private payers often adopt G codes but you need to check the payer's policy.

I guess that's a long-winded way of saying "No" and "It depends." :)Good luck on the test.
