We have a patient that had a toe fx charge back in December; he's still under that global period. Came in yesterday with a new wrist fx. Do I put both 24 & 57 on the E/M??

Thanks!

If you are charging fracture care for the 2nd fracture or going to do surgery, then you
would use both 25 and 57. 24 to unlock from the global period and 57 for decision
for surgery on the 2nd fracture
does that help?

Does your practitioner want to initiate fx care of the new fracture, or is he/she billing out office for this one?

He is initiating fx care for the new wrist injury in the office which includes the x-rays and cast application while still in the global period for the fractured toe from December.

Thanks!
