Armband-L3701 deleted... NEW code?

    Default Armband-L3701 deleted... NEW code?
    Exam Training Packages
    Since L3701 was deleted 1/1/2010, what would be the appropriate replacement code for this? We dispensed an "Armband-universal for the support of the arm". That's what's typed on the box. It's used for tennis elbow or ulnar neuropathy. It's a simple piece of material with a spongy place to put on the forearm and velcro to secure it in place. I can't find a code

    Garment, belt, sleeve or other covering, elastic or similar stretchable material, any type, each

    That seems different than this:
    You would code this with that code?

    I am also looking for a code to replace L3701. What do you think of A4465 (nonelastic binder for extremity)?

    Just got this site today for a crosswalk to new and old HCPCS codes. See if this might help you. You may have to accept the end user agreement before access.

    I guess regardless of how it sounds, you are correct according to the Noridian Medicare crosswalk code

    Thanks to you Lisa Curtis and thanks to Anna Weaver who provided a link!

    This is exactly why I love this site!
