Thread: Pediatric ortho codes

  1. #1

    Default Pediatric ortho codes

    I don't usually code for peds. But wanted to know if there are seperate codes for pediatric fracture repair versus adult?

    one of our docs is asking and I thought I would see you anyone knew.

    Default All the same

    I am NOT an Ortho expert, but as far as I know NONE of the fracture treatment codes are age specific.

    I didn't think so I just wanted confirmation because I have not seen any and also would be new at coding peds.
    Thanks for your response.

    F Tessa is correct, the fracture treatment CPT codes are not age specific but if you are using Q-codes for cast supplies, they are age specific.
