    our ortho practice uses the HCPCS codes for the supplies. The 99070 verbage states "over and beyond" this statement would lead me away from this code. The HCPCS codes are usually included but you still should bill it.
    have a great day

    HCPCS code A4570 (commercial carriers)

    We bill e/m-25, splint application code, and appropriate Q code. I have not had any problems with getting payment from commercial carriers for Q codes.
