Thanks for your question. Was there a specific denial reason on your explanation of benefits? See attached links for billing tips for L4360; Walking boot, pneumatic and/or vacuum, with or without joints, with or without interface material, prefabricated item that has been trimmed, bent, molded, assembled, or otherwise customized to fit a specific patient by an individual with expertise. It is possible that the diagnosis codes used with the code is the reason for the denial you are receiving.
