Correction to SNF Consolidated Billing Code Lists

Daniel Ciolek

Per the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), certain Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) codes were not included in the 2014 annual update to the Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) consolidated billing code editing lists. A correction to the coding lists will be implemented in October, 2014.

The affected HCPCS codes for practitioner billing are Q2050 and the professional component of G0461 and G0462. The affected code for institutional provider billing is Q2050. If you have claims that have been erroneously denied, you should contact your Medicare Administrative Contractor to have the claims re-opened and re-processed.
