Thread: Surgical shoe

    Default Surgical shoe

    AAPC: Back to School
    We dispence surgical shoes in our office that are used after surgery or worn after podiatric procedures. There are 2 HCPCS codes L3260 and A9270 for surgical shoes. Can anyone explain the difference between the two?

    According to the 2009 HCPCS A9270 is a non-covered item or service listed under the heading of Administrative, Miscellaneous & Investigative.

    L3260 is a surgical boot/shoe. This is the one we use for Ortho and Podiatry.
