Revenue code 0272 Sterile Supplies

Have most hospitals done away with billing 0272 Sterile Supplies.  In Maine we are the last ones standing with a % of charge from commercial payers.  They are citing routine to the procedure and I cannot disagree but does anyone have solid backing to defend these charges?  I know from a FED standpoint they are bundled: but is there any way with guidelines to defend this charge besides it can be categorized by HCPCS code?


  • We are still charging for supplies under rev code 272, but have increased cost threshold on billing supplies to help support that the charges are not routine.
