What is a C- Code ?
C-Codes: relate to Temporary codes for use with Outpatient PPS (Prospective Payment System)
C-Codes are used exclusively to report services, drugs, biologicals, and devices eligible for transitional pass-through payments for hospitals, and for items classified in new-technology ambulatory payment classifications (APCs) under the Outpatient PPS (Prospective Payment System). They may not be used to bill under other Medicare payment systems.
