    AAPC: Back to School
    Need help on hcpcs code for ace bandage. I have used a4465 for a medicare patient and medicare has denied this code. Does anyone know what might be the correct code? I was also looking at q4050 but also 99070. I would greatly appreciate the help.

    Look at the light compression bandage codes, elastic (A6448-A6450); select according to the bandage width.

    Default code to replace 92070

    Hi. I am wondering, I can figure out that the physician billing for contact bandages should be 92071 OR 92072, but what will the hospital side use for outpatient billing. Someone suggested 99070(supplies and materials [except spectacles]) but that still sounds like professional services and not the supply. Help! I am so confused!
