Debate in office about fracture care

    Default Debate in office about fracture care
    Medical Coding Books
    We are debating in my office about whether a non-orthopedic physician can charge fracture care. I am under the assumption that a family practice physician can charge fracture care; some people disagree with me. Looking for clarification on this topic.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Yes, some primary care physicians perform fracture care for the simpler fractures.

    We sometimes bill fracture care for our ED physicians as well.
