Question:
We have recruited a new hand surgeon and she frequently applies aluminum finger splints which are molded by the surgeon or her medical assistant. Can we report CPT code 29130 for the application and molding of this splint?

Answer:
Thanks for this great question! The application of the splint code 29130 is not reportable for an off the shelf product such as the aluminum splint. Report the appropriate HCPCS code for the supply only.
