Back to NCD List

Description: Claims for the annual HIV screening must contain one of the new HCPCS along with a primary diagnosis code of V73.89, and when increased risk factors are reported, a secondary diagnosis code of V69.8. For claims for pregnant women, one of the new HCPCS codes must be reported with a primary diagnosis code of V73.89 and one secondary diagnosis code of either V22.0 (Supervision of normal first pregnancy), V22.1 (Supervision of other normal pregnancy), or V23.9 (Supervision of unspecified high-risk pregnancy). Institutional providers should also report revenue code 030X for claims for HIV screening.

When claims for HIV screening are denied because they are not billed with the proper diagnosis code(s) and/or HCPCS codes, Medicare will use a claim adjustment reason code (CARC) of 167 (This (these) diagnosis(es) is (are) not covered.). Where claims are denied because of edits regarding frequency of the tests, a CARC of 119 (Benefit maximum for this time period or occurrence has been reached.) will be used.

NOTE: 11 full months must elapse following the month in which the previous test was performed in order for the subsequent test to be covered. • Three voluntary HIV screenings of pregnant Medicare beneficiaries at the following times: (1) when the diagnosis of pregnancy is known, (2) during the third trimester, and (3) at labor, if ordered by the woman’s clinician.
