We had a patient present to the ED indicating their cast was too tight (we did not apply the cast originally). The provider bivalved the cast but I can't find anything other than an unlisted code to bill for this procedure. Any help is appreciated!

I agree with 29700. Gauntlet (covering the hand and fingers like a glove) describes the short arm cast.
