Hospitals can overlook HCPCS G-codes that are often used by Medicare as a replacement to CPT codes. G codes are temporary codes and might be used for screening services, services not described in CPT but covered by Medicare or services that replace CPT Codes. This document includes all of the HCPCS G-codes with coding tips for each code. It can be sorted by department which makes it a nice tool for a chargemaster coordinator.
