The reporting of C-codes on hospital outpatient claims is critical to ensure appropriate coding for device-related procedures as well as appropriate levels of reimbursement. Medicare and also private payers use C-codes to track the cost of medical devices used during a hospital outpatient procedure that is billed under the Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment System (OPPS). While separate reimbursement for devices is not driven by c-code use, Medicare sets new hospital OPPS rates using hospital claims and cost data and the use of a C-code to report the device will ensure that the device’s costs are included.
