Thread: podiatry coding question

    Default podiatry coding question

    AAPC: Back to School
    documentation states "new removable (L & M) or (MT) pad was fabricated from piano felt and Elastoplast." I'm not locating a HCPCS orthotic code with a descriptor for this service. It's my opinion this would be included in the E and M. Does anyone have experience in podiatry/ortho coding that shares my opinion or has a different opinion?

    That would be included with the E/M at the podiatric practice I work for.
