Fracture without manipulation

Hello,

I have a situation where my doctor saw the patient in the ER for a distal tib/fib fracture. She has declined to have surgery here as she is from out of town and will seek orthopedic care when she returns home. My doctor did not manipulate the fracture however would like to charge fracture charges. The CPT codes he wants to bill are for fractures without manipulation but since she is going to seek treatment elsewhere, I am not sure we can bill for those.

What are some thoughts on this?

Thanks-
Lorie
