    Question 25622 and/or 25600

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have a physician in the ED that did fracture care for a distal radius fracture and a scaphoid fracture (he did not reduce fractures just casted). Can I code both of these CPT codes or should I just code one fracture care code? Both fractures were of the same extremity.

    I also posted this in the ER thread, this was a patient that came in through the ER and I typically do not code for orthopaedics. Any help you could offer in this situation would be appreciated.

    Those are two different fractures so I would bill for both.
