New Codes for Home Health Consolidated Billing

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has issued its annual update to the home health consolidated billing list. Effective April 1, 2014 the following new codes will be added to the home health consolidated billing.

Supply HCPCS codes:

A7047 Oral Interface Used With Respiratory Suction Pump, each

A6531, Gradient Compression Stocking, Below Knee, 30-40 MMHG, Each

A6532, Gradient Compression Stocking, Below Knee, 40-50 MMHG, Each

A7047 is a new HCPCS code in 2014. Codes A6531 and A6532 are existing codes added due to their similarity to code A6545, which has been subject to HH consolidated billing since 2009.

Therapy HCPCS codes:

92521 – Evaluation of speech fluency (eg, stuttering, cluttering)

92522 – Evaluation of speech sound production (eg, articulation, phonological process, apraxia, dysarthria);

92523 – with evaluation of language comprehension and expression (eg, receptive and expressive language)
