Product Description

Put a Wrap on Coding for Casting, Strapping & Splinting


When it comes to coding for casting, strapping, and splinting, you’re likely leaving money on the table. CPT has specific guidelines for when these services are considered “included,” and CMS has certain instructions on reporting casting when you’re treating multiple fractures. You may also miss out on deserved reimbursement if you’re not properly billing for the supplies that are payable when you perform casting, strapping, and splinting services. Additionally, you may not even know about other services in this CPT section that you could report for added revenue.

Join expert speaker Lynn Anderanin as she instructs you on how to correctly code for casting, strapping, and splinting—and get all the reimbursement you deserve. Learn when you can report these services and everything that’s involved in sending clean claims for quick payments. And find out what supplies you can report to get reimbursed for costs your practice incurs—including Medicare’s guidelines on this.

After attending this audio event, you will understand all the circumstances in which you can use the casting, strapping, and splinting codes. You will know what supplies are payable when these services are performed. You’ll walk away with the tools you need to properly document these services so your practice can get proper payment for the professional component.
