Thanks for your question. In this case, you may use a modifier 25 with your office visit if the visit represents a significant and separately identifiable visit in addition to the treatment of the fracture. Make sure that your documentation supports a need for the E/M visit on the same day as the treatment of the fracture. Hope this helps.
