Please help, pt had xrays in ER and was reduced for radius/ulna fracture. Then followed up two days later w/my doctor. New xrays taken because pt's forearm still displaced. Doctor reduced fracture, took another set of xrays BEFORE casting...then took another set of xrays AFTER casting. Can all of these xrays be billed? If so, how do I do that or where can I find the info.

Thanks,

Modifier -77 may also be appropriate--depending upon your circumstances.

Be sure to reflect the appropriate ICD-9 for the post-treatment films to correlate with those taken pre-procedure.

Good luck.
