    Does CPT code 27824 include distal fracture of both tib and fib?

    When I read the description in the CPT book and the 'lay description' on encoderpro it does not mention the fibula, just tibia.

    Hope this helps!

    Can I bill treatment of fibula seperately? Meaning I'd have two seperate codes for tib and fib fracture treatment?
    Thanks

    Look at code 27828 and see if that fits your situation.

    Thanks

    Sorry that last code I gave is for open treatment; but look in that area of codes to see if one fits your situation.

    The closed tx code for tib/fib or any of the -2- combination of bones mentioned in the description under code 27808 w/o manipulation would be the one to use or with manipulation (27810).
