    Default billing fracture care for old fractures

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone know if it is correct coding to bill out "fracture care" for a fracture that is a month old or older?? Any ideas of where to look for answers??? Thanks for any advice!

    Default Initial fracture care?

    Ortho is NOT my area of expertise, but I have a couple of questions ...

    Is this initial fracture treatment? Has patient been walking around with an undiagnosed fracture for a month?

    Or is this a complication of a previously treated fracture?
