The Coding Challenge


A 16-year-old male is seen in the ED with complaints of pain and difficulty breathing through his nose. He states he was playing basketball at his high school earlier when another player accidentally elbowed him in the mid-face area. After clinical examination, the physician diagnoses a nasal bone fracture. The nose is successfully realigned through closed reduction, and internal packing is applied to control the bleeding. The patient is referred to an ENT specialist for follow-up care. Assign for CPT and ICD-10-CM.
