Prior to 2002, most suppliers billed for dialysis supplies using codes describing "kits" of supplies. The use of kit codes allowed suppliers to bill for supply items without separately identifying the supplies that are being furnished to the patient. Effective January 1, 2002, these kit codes were deleted and suppliers are required to bill for dialysis supplies using HCPCS codes for individual dialysis supplies.
