    Good Morning!

    I'm having a difficult time figuring out if codes for binaural hearing aids (V5259 in my example) can be billed with a quantity of 2? Does this code inherently include a pair or is this for just one hearing aid?

    Thanks in advance for any insight.

    I would code V53.2, Fitting and Adjustment of Hearing Aid.

    Question
    Thanks, but I'm questioning the code for the actual hearing aid device. Do the codes for the binaural hearing aids represent one unit or a pair?

    The code represents both aids so I bill with 1 unit.
