Yes you can bill an office visit with the application of the splint as long as the physician did exam the patient and meets the criteria for the E/M code. You would add the 25 modifier on the office visit CPT as your example states.

For the splint you should use the appropriate Q code for the "casting" supply depending on age and whether plaster or fiberglass was used, rather than 99070. Look at HCPCS codes Q4017-Q4020.
