    Default when to use and E/M code with a fracture care code

    AAPC: Back to School
    hi, i have just heard that the only way you can bill an E/M with a fracture care code is if manipulation occured? Does anyone know if this is true? When can an E/M be billed with a fracture code and a 57 modifier?
