FISS/DDE Provider Online Guide: Chapter IV - New HCPC Screen (1E)

New HCPC Screen (1E)


The purpose of the New HCPCS Screen (1E) is to provide information related to HCPCS pricing and allowable revenue codes related to HCPCS.

HCPCS codes are five-digit alphanumeric Category II procedure codes developed by CMS to describe a medical service or supply. Category I codes are five-digit numeric CPT codes, developed and copyrighted by the American Medical Association. The HCPC CODES option includes details for both CPT codes and HCPCS codes.

Note: All HCPCS/CPT codes listed in the HCPC CODES option are FISS editing files. Claims submitted that do not correspond with the data contained within the HCPC CODES option will be RTP.

This option will replace the existing “14” HCPCS code option currently available in the Inquiry Menu.
