Thread: Ulna Gutter Cast Codes?

  1. #1

    Default Ulna Gutter Cast Codes?

    I'm working on a Superbill for our casting bracing section and was wondering how you might code a cast for a boxers fracture.
    We call it an Ulna Gutter cast. Short arm cast with 4th & 5th incorporated.
    I'm hesitant in coding it a simple SAC because the work effort is much greater.

    Any suggestions?
