Thread: forearm fx with manipulation

    Question forearm fx with manipulation

    AAPC: Back to School
    One of my docs reduced a fx radius/ulnar shaft in office with a block.. For the life of me, I cannot find that code for the block. Can anyone help?

    Per CPT, the block is part of the surgical package and is included in the fracture care code, so it should not be billed separately. (If you're talking about an anethesia block, that is!)
    Happy coding
