Fracture Care


Best answers
I have a patient that was seen in ED, ED physician put on a cast, then follow up with orthpaedics. Patient comes in we charge for an office visit and a closed fracture but we did not do anything such as put another cast on or splint, just sent patient to OT.

Do I even charge for the closed fracture?

Thank you:confused:
