I have a question about Observation codes. I work in a Cardiology office and my doctor consulted on a patient at the hospital that was in Observation status - insurance is Medicaid. My understanding is that for an observation consult when your doctor is not the admitting physician, you would use the out patient consult codes 99201-99205 for new or 99211-99215 for established. However, it is also my understanding that Medicaid does not accept these codes in a hospital setting, so is there a different set of codes that I should be using for Medicaid?
