I am new to Ortho billing and need some information regarding the correct coding/billing for the appkication of non-fracture splinting, strappine, CAM boot etc. If the provider has the DME on site, but does not own (send order to Pharmacy to bill) can we bill for the application of the pre-fab device? If so, what code? I have found references to the 292xx codes as well as 97760. Some sources state to just bill E & M and base it on time spent. Also, what is the HCPCs code billed by the DME says it includes the adjustment and fitting? Then the billing of both seems to be incorrect; But I have found many of the DME providers bill this way.

Any Input is appreciated.

Thanks
