The Ingenix 2009 HCPCS Level II book contains mandated changes and new Because HCPCS is organized by code number rather than by service or supply codes for use as of January 1, 2009. Deleted codes have also been indicated name, the index enables the coder to locate any code without looking through and cross-referenced to active codes when possible. New codes have been individual ranges of codes. Just look up the medical or surgical supply, added to the appropriate sections, eliminating the time-consuming step of service, orthotic, prosthetic, or generic or brand name drug in question to find looking in two places for a code. However, keep in mind that the information the appropriate codes.

documents. The sources for these codes are often noted in blue beneath The Ingenix HCPCS Level II book provides colored symbols for each coverage and reimbursement instruction. A legend to these symbols is provided on the bottom of each two-page spread.
Supplies for self-administered injections
Blue Color Bar—Special Coverage Instructions
A blue bar for “special coverage instructions” over a code means
that special coverage instructions apply to that code. These special
instructions are also typically given in the form of Medicare
Pub.100 reference numbers. The appendixes provide the full text
of the cited Medicare Pub.100 references.
Yellow Color Bar—Contractor Discretion
Chlorhexidine containing antiseptic, 1 ml
Issues that are left to “contractor discretion” are covered with a yellow bar. Contact the contractor for specific coverage information on those codes.
Red Color Bar—Not Covered by or Invalid for Medicare
Syringe with needle for external insulin
Codes that are not covered by or are invalid for Medicare are pump, sterile, 3cc
covered by a red bar. The pertinent Medicare internet-only manuals (Pub. 100) reference numbers are also given explaining why a particular code is not covered. These numbers refer to the appendixes, where we have listed the Medicare references.

@ Quantity Alert
Many codes in HCPCS report quantities that may not coincide with
quantities available in the marketplace. For instance, a HCPCS
code for an ostomy pouch with skin barrier reports each pouch,
but the product is generally sold in a package of 10; “10” must be
indicated in the quantity box on the CMS claim form to ensure
Syringe with needle, sterile 2 cc, each
proper reimbursement. This symbol indicates that care should be taken to verify quantities in this code. These quantity alerts do not represent Medicare Unlikely Edits (MUEs) and should not be used for MUEs. An appendix of the MUE’s can be found in appendix 8 of the HCPCS Level II Expert editions.
