FP Coding For Splints

  1. Question FP Coding For Splints
    Medical Coding Books
    Hi, I am the coder for a family practice clinic with 1 provider. Our provider will make his own splints for arms, fingers etc. and will let me know how much he would like to charge (supplies). How can I code for the supplies used for the splint? or a splint? 99000 will not get paid.

    Check out the Q codes in HCPCS (Q4008 - Q4048). These codes are covered by most payers.

    I agree with Lisa, use caution though, if there is a procedure that is performed on the same DOS (ie: closed reduction of finger fracture), then the splint would be considered an integral part of the procedure and therefore not codeable

    Thanks for the help!
