    Does anyone know if application of an ankle air cast (L4350) can be billed and what code would be used!

    Default Ankle Air Cast

    I would code an ankle air cast as a short leg splint because it is used for support of injured ankles. I would use CPT code 29515 : Application of short leg splint ( calf to foot). I hope this helped.
