CAN A PROVIDER BILL 28470 IF NO CAST,STRAPING AND IT IS A FOLLOW/UP VISIT. PROVIDER WANTS TO BILL BOTH 99213 AND 28470.

The Provider can only code '28470' if he performs "closed treatment of talotarsal joint dislocation; without anesthesia." If this is a follow up visit in the office and no closed treatment of dislocation is performed, he can only code the office visit. '28470' would only be coded and billed out at the time of the actual reduction of the dislocation.
