Thread: Unna Boot Question

    Default Unna Boot Question

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hello Everyone! I have a clinician that is putting a small patch on the unna boot. Basically, the clinician is putting a small patch on a wound. I don't think we can code the entire Unna Boot Application, would this just be an E/M service? THANK YOU

    If the nature of the visit was strictly to change the unna boot, I would use 29580.

    Default HCPCS Code ??

    Is there a HCPCS code you have to use along with the 29580? Are the casting supplies included in the 29580?
