Did you know that HCPCS is an acronym for Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System? This coding system was developed in 1983 by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), (formerly Health Care Financing Administration) for the purpose of standardizing the medical billing and coding systems used to process Medicare claims. The HCPCS coding system is primarily used to bill Medicare for supplies, materials and injections and for certain services and procedures that are not defined in the Current Procedure Terminology (known as CPT). HCPCS codes must be used when billing Medicare carriers.
