unna boot application

Good Morning My Fellow Coders:

Our Vascular docs are putting Unna Boots on patients. I am new to Vascular. My supervisor wants to know can a nurse apply the Unna Boot and bill for it and can an E&M be done as well at the time of the application of the boot? If anyone has any information, I would so appreciate.

Thank you.

    The nurse can do it under incident to rules. A sep E/M is usually not warrented. Mod 25 would apply.

    Thank you
