Budin Toe Splint

Question: What supply code should we report for a Budin toe splint (toe straightener)? Missouri Subscriber Answer: HCPCS doesn’t include a code specifically for a Budin toe splint, so your only option is a generic supply code. The closest choice is temporary code Q4051 (Splint supplies, miscellaneous [includes thermoplastics, strapping, fasteners, padding and other supplies]).
