no, to put on a prefab splint is actually a "fitting" and should be part of your E/M visit.
The codes for "application of splint" (please see the CPT lay descriptions) are designed for those splints that are made and fabricated in your office setting with web roll, fiberglass, etc. not the prefab ones. In addition to this application, you would then be able to capture the materials as well.
