Coding, Classification and Reimbursement

  • 1.  Dislocation with fracture

    Posted 15 days ago
    ​I have a case where the patient suffered a dislocation and fracture of the same bone. The dislocation was reduced on a separate day than the fracture.
    Could you bill both the dislocation reduction and the fracture reduction if they occurred on separate days?
    Also, with the ICD 10 coding, I know for dislocation with fracture you are only supposed to code the fracture. Would you still only code the fracture dx for the dislocation?
