Coding DME Question

  1. Cool Coding DME Question
    Medical Coding Books
    If you code any L codes like L3908 splint do you also charge for the application of the splint or does the application of splint only apply to Q codes such as Q4040?

    When I code the Lcodes - such as you specify - I do not code the Qcodes also. I do use the Qcodes when I have fracture treatment/cast/splint applications (as you stated)

    {that's my opinion on the posted matter}

    Okay so when you use the L code L3908 do you use the application from the CPT book also.
