    Default help with cpt code splint with e/m code?

    AAPC: Back to School
    if a long arm splint was done in the office an will follow up with an ortho tomorrow could i bill an office vist with splint and also supply code from hcpcs or cpt?

    this is what im thinking:
    99213-25,29125,99070,dx code 813.44

    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.
