Proven, Consistent and Accurate Coding
What is HCPCS Coding?
The Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) is a coding system used to classify medical services and supplies in the United States. HCPCS codes are used by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) as well as private insurance companies.
HCPCS coding is a way to code healthcare services and products to assign a billing code to the service or product. When HCPCS coding is used on a billing statement, it makes it easier for healthcare payers to process and pay for the service or product. HCPCS coding is a way to group healthcare services and products into one designated set of codes. This coding helps healthcare payers to determine which services or products they are authorized to pay for , and also makes it easier for consumers to understand the costs of healthcare services and products.

The HCPCS (Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System) is a set of standardized codes for medical operations, supplies, products, and services. The codes are used by Medicare and other insurers to speed up the processing of health insurance claims.
The HCPCS is organized into two main subsystems, which are referred to as level I and level II. CPT (Current Procedural Terminology), a numeric coding system administered by the American Medical Association, makes up Level I of the HCPCS (AMA).
Two new level II HCPCS codes were established on March 1, 2020, to identify specimen collection for COVID-19 testing. For the duration of the PHE for the COVID-19 pandemic, independent laboratories must use one of these HCPCS codes when billing Medicare for the minimal specimen collection fee for COVID-19 testing. These are the HCPCS codes:
- G2023, any specimen source, specimen collection for severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) (Coronavirus disease [COVID-19]).
- G2024, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) (Coronavirus disease [COVID-19]) specimen collected from an individual in an SNF or by a laboratory on behalf of an HHA, any specimen source
The AMA's numeric CPT coding is Level I; Level II includes alphanumeric codes for non-physician services (for instance, ambulance services and prosthetic devices)
HCPCS level III codes are only accepted locally and are not accepted nationally. These codes denote a product or service that is not covered by the HCPCS level I or level II codes. Like HCPCS level II codes, these codes usually begin with an alphabet X or Z, followed by four numeric characters.
To begin with, not all payers recognize HCPCS Level II codes. The HCPCS Level II code system was originally designed for Medicare claims, but many commercial payers have already embraced it.
HCPCS codes are used by coders to describe medical operations to Medicare, Medicaid, and other third-party payers today. The code set is divided into three levels. Level one codes are equivalent to CPT codes, albeit they are actually HCPCS codes when used to bill Medicare or Medicaid.
The level II HCPCS codes were created for submitting claims for a variety of services, supplies, and equipment that are not recognized by CPT-4 codes.
The Alpha-Numeric Editorial Panel of CMS establishes Level II HCPCS codes, which primarily represent items and supplies as well as non-physician services not covered by the American Medical Association's Current Procedural Terminology-4 (CPT-4) codes; Medicare, Medicaid, and private health insurers use HCPCS procedure codes.
HCPCS Level I includes the CPT code set, which is used to submit medical claims to payers for operations and services provided by physicians, non-physician practitioners, hospitals, laboratories, and outpatient facilities.
