Global Period with Cast

We have a patient that is in a global period at the present time. The patient goes in for a follow-up during this period. The doctor applied a long leg walking cast at this same visit. Are we allowed to bill the long leg walking cast (29355) in addition to the Fracture Care Follow Up (99024)?

re: Global Period with Cast

The global fracture code includes the INITIAL cast application. Any additional casts are separately reportable. This is all explained in the CPT® book.
