Thread: closed fracture

    Default closed fracture

    AAPC: Back to School
    I was wondering how offices charge for closed treatment fractures in the office? Do you bill Global with a surgery code, or Itemize each visit? I just noticed the article I am reading was from 2008. I don't know if you still have the option.

    When we are able to code fracture care the codes have a 90 day global.

    If the decison is made to do closed treatment during the office visit you would add a mod 57 and then Pt would be under global care for 9o days.
