    AAPC: Back to School
    I have found 2 ways to code for Profore dressing - which one is correct? I've read that you can charge as an unna boot (29580) or to charge as 29799 as an unspecified casting/strapping. I fear of having issues with payment with the unspecified but the profore dressing is not the same as unna boot.

    Default dressing

    We use 29580 (unna boot), but there are rules that go with the Unna boot. Follow those and it's not a problem.
