Thread: Cast boot part of walking cast?

    Default Cast boot part of walking cast?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hi I have a friend that is trying to figure this out. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    I am trying to determine if a cast boot is part of a walking cast or should be billed separately. The CPT code for the application of the walking cast is 29425. According to what I read it says it does not include supplies or materials. I am not sure of the HCPCS code for the cast boot. We have been using L3260.

    it is not part of the cast itself. It is considered a DME and should be billed in addition to the cast. (and pray the provider allows for reimbursement of such)
