    Default Casting

    Promo: Code Books
    I have questions about the casting codes; if they do more than in the description do you add a modifier? Example is SAC 29075, if they add a thumb spica to this how would you code it? Would you still use 29075?

    What if they did less than the description would you add modifier 52?

    thanks

    you may want to look at 29085 for the thumb spica.
