Hi, hope you can help me. The physician placed a sling on a sprain of the elbow in the office. It was immobilized and the sprained elbow was treated by wrapping the arm/elbow and applying the sling. I can not seem to find a code for this.

As per above documentation, appropriate CPT code seems to be 29105. For supplies, appropriate HCPCS Level II code may be reported with A4570, but you need to check with the specific payer to determine coverage.
HOPE THIS HELPS!
