Thread: HCPC for compression gauntlet

  1. #1

    Default HCPC for compression gauntlet

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am trying to find a HCPC code for a compression gauntlet that covers the wrist and goes to the bottom of the knuckles. There is a code for a breast prosthesis sleeve but I don't feel that this would be correct because it is not the whole sleeve. Any help would be great

    Is what you are looking for a wrist-hand-finger orthosis (WHFO), perhaps in the range L3806-L3904?

    That code is much closer to the description. Thank you for your help.
