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
- 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
