prepare for your fracture visit

  • call (937)-641-3010 to make an appointment
  • bring x-ray/imaging to the appointment
  • keep splinting applied until seen by an orthopaedic physician

billing for fractures

Insurance companies require that physician practices bill their patients using a coding system known as “Current Procedural Terminology,” or CPT.

According to CPT guidelines, fracture care is a “packaged or global service.” As such, your initial bill will include charges for:

  • The first cast or splint application
  • 90 days of normal, uncomplicated follow-up care (the timeframe may vary depending on your insurance policy)

The following services would appear separately on your bill (not all patients receive all of these services):

  • Physician evaluation of the fracture
  • X-rays
  • All casting supplies (fiberglass, Gore-Tex, bandage wraps, slings, cast shoes, etc.)
  • Replacement cast
  • The evaluation and management of any additional problems or injuries
  • Treatment for any complications

If you have any questions about fracture billing, please contact our office.
