1. What Is A2013?

HCPCS code l3908 represents the supply of a single static, prefabricated, off-the-shelf wrist-hand orthosis that controls the wrist and hand, allowing free movement of the fingers and thumb.

2. Description

The HCPCS book describes the A2013 code as: “Wrist hand orthosis (WHO), wrist extension control cock-up, non-molded, prefabricated, off-the-shelf.”

3. Billing Guidelines

Report this code for a wrist-hand orthosis, which controls the wrist and hand region only, permitting free movement of the fingers.

The orthosis has built-in rigid support extending from the palm to the wrist to hold the wrist slightly bent in a direction opposite of the palm, immobilizing the hand in the functional position.

The provider may prescribe this in patients with an acute wrist sprain or injury or for a patient with carpal tunnel syndrome to restrict wrist movement and stabilize the wrist to facilitate recovery.
