:cool:
When doing a serial cast for club feet or charcot joint, for example. I do not charge EM visit. I only charge application cast and supply code.
My doctor is asking for documentation of this. Does anyone know where I might find documentation supporting this?
Thank you so much in advace.
Have a great day. Lynn

The subsection just before the casting codes in the CPT code book state "additional e & m services are reportable ONLY if significant identifiable further services are provided at the time of the cast application or strapping".

I would throw the book at em'!! (well not really..but you know what I mean):eek:
