    Does Medicare still pay on casting supply codes a4649, a4580, a4590? Or will Medicare pay on only the Q codes Q4001. We have been billing the A codes for fracture care and they are being denied.

    A4580 and A4590 arenot valid or covered by Medicare; A4649 coverage is based on carrier discretion. You're better off using the Q codes.
