Thread: Code A4614

  1. #1

    Default Code A4614

    AAPC: Back to School
    A4614 Peak expiratory flow rate meter, hand held

    This code is for DME and exists but are we actually billing for it?
    I understand it is based on carrier discretion as to whether it is paid or not. Some are reporting it and others remove it.

    I only code A4614 for Medicare patients. Other carriers only accept it on a Medicare crossover claim for secondary claims. For all other carriers they accept S8096 or S8110 for peak flow meters.

    Good Luck,
