HCPCS code A9270

A9270 is a HCPCS code for a non-covered item or service and should not be used to bill for denial of home infusion items or services. A9270 can only be used if there is no specific HCPCS code for a non-covered item or service and there is no appropriate NOC code available.  Per Medicare guidelines, if there is a specific HCPCS for an item or service, then that specific HCPCS should be used.  If a denial from Medicare is expected, then the appropriate modifier, GY, GA or GZ should be added to the code.  If there is no specific HCPCS code to describe the item, then code A9270 is acceptable.
