Hello,
If a chiropractor refers a new patient to an Orthopedic Specialist to get an injection only in a major, can the provider just bill for the injection only due to no EM provided.
Thanks!

If someone does not provide an E&M service, they do not bill for an E&M service.

If a provider is willing to perform an injection based on someone else's order or recommendation, then bill the injection.

We don't do this in our office, our provider wants to evaluate the patient prior to any treatment.
