First initial visit the first casting/supplies is included in that? Am I correct on this.

Thanks,
Jeanne
Included in what? If you are talking about fracture care cases then yes the initial application of cast is included in fracture care service. You would bill an E/M-57 + Q codes for supplies + Fracture care code.

Jeanne, your supplies are always seperately billable, whether you bill:

1) ala-carte E&M - 25, Cast code -rt or -lt, and your supply code, Q-code or A-code, depending on the ins.

2) E&M - 57, Closed Treatment Code with -rt or -lt, and your supply code. Mary
