    Default Splints

    AAPC: Back to School
    I work in a Family Practice office and I was wondering if we can bill for the supplies used in addition to an application of a splint or cast?

    Absolutely! Just remember if you are coding fracture care you can't code the applicaton on the first visit. Use the Q codes for fiberglass or plaster.
