CodeSystem: HCFA Procedure Codes (HCPCS)

Official URL: http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/HCPCS-all-codes Version: 3.0.0
Retired as of 2021-02-23 Computable Name: HPC
Other Identifiers: id: Uniform Resource Identifier (URI)#urn:oid:2.16.840.1.113883.6.14

The HCFA Procedure Codes (HCPCS) as originally defined includes three levels of codes. Level I includes CPT codes, Level II includes HCPCS Level II codes, and Level III includes codes that have not been valid since 2003.

CPT and HCPCS Level II have their own identifiers. Therefore, this identifier should never be used in current electronic interchange and is maintained for historical reference only.

This Code system is referenced in the content logical definition of the following value sets:

  • This CodeSystem is not used here; it may be used elsewhere (e.g. specifications and/or implementations that use this content)

This case-sensitive code system http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/HCPCS-all-codes defines codes in a Is-A heirarchy, but no codes are represented here
