This presentation will review the ins and outs of coding for casting, strapping, and splinting, all common ways of treating integumentary and musculoskeletal conditions and injuries. We will talk about when we can report these services, and all that is involved in sending clean claims for quick payments on these services. We will also review the supplies that we can report to get paid the costs the practice incurs on these supplies. In 2022 there were changes made in CPT to clarify when these services are included in other procedures, and when they can be reported separately. Not knowing these rules and guidelines can be the difference between profit and loss.

Snippet From Our Previous Session


“Jim Sheldon-Dean’s insights on privacy and security were very much helpful to our team, it was great to learn from an instructor like him. Appreciate!”

“This program on HIPAA did a great job providing actionable concepts in a way that updated our team and me, I now know how I will implement the concepts because I already did it in their online seminar, it was easy to ask questions from the speaker at the end of my 60 minutes course.”

“The workshop was very insightful and made absolute sense in terms of the regulations and their compliance. I am thankful for having the opportunity to attend.”
