Fracture Care Billing


 

CPT Guidelines

Insurance companies require we bill our services using a coding system known as Current Procedural Terminology (CPT).  These codes, located in the “surgery” section of the CPT codebook, identify the exact fracture and the care rendered.   The term “surgery” does not imply an operation was performed; this is merely the format in which CPT is organized for ease of use by both the insurance companies and physicians.

According to CPT guidelines, fracture care is billed as a “package” or “global” service.

This means that at the time of initial care, a charge is generated that INCLUDES:

  • Evaluation of the fracture
  • The APPLICATION of the first cast or splint.  (There will be a separate charge for supplies)
  • 90 days of normal, uncomplicated, follow up care

Items NOT INCLUDED in the package or global service charge:

  • X-rays
  • All casting or splinting  supplies or durable medical equipment
  • Any replacement cast, splint or supply application
  • The evaluation and management of any additional problems or injuries
  • The treatment of complications

Items not included will be billed as separate charges.
