Code Finder for AngioDynamics Products
The Code Finder is a database of AngioDynamic products and their corresponding Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) C-codes. The database allows users to search for HCPCS C-codes by product name, item number, or product category.
The Medicare program established special HCPCS C-codes for highly specialized devices paid under the hospital outpatient prospective payment system, on a transitional basis. Use of the C-codes by hospitals is critical to secure accurate reimbursement. The C-codes will be used for tracking the devices, number of units, and their charges so Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will be able to determine when specific categories of devices are used in outpatient procedures. The HCPCS C-codes used to designate the devices used in hospital outpatient procedures must be reported. The code information here is not to be used to bill or seek separate payment for the device, which may be bundled into payment. These HCPCS codes are not separately payable by Medicare when used in a hospital inpatient or outpatient setting.
