    Cool orthotics - We are getting denials from Insurances

    AAPC: Back to School
    We are getting denials from Insurances on orthotics, saying it is requiring modifiers (ie, 97760 therapy putty (after carpal tunnel surgery) global period: 29125/L3908 wrist orthotic after fx). What modifier should I use?
