Thread: ORIF Distal Radius & Ulnar Styloid Fractures

    Default ORIF Distal Radius & Ulnar Styloid Fractures

    AAPC: Back to School
    Do the 25607 thru 25609 include the repair of the ulnar styloid fracture or should that be coded separately with 25652? Thanks.

    if I remember correctly none of the codes include the ulnar styloid so you will bill them seperately (double check the cci edits)

    for open treatment of the ulnar styloid fracture, use 25652 -
    code it separate
    {that's my opinion on the posted matter}
