My office had a patient who failed conservative treatment & came in for a surgery conference. The MA took the history and x-rays were taken. However, the patient never saw the doctor(why? I'm still working on that). Our physician is trying to charge a consult, but I'm thinking the x-ray should only be charged. Thanks for any assistance.

Based on my conservative lean in the situation it would be Radiology charge(s) only--just so long as the doc read them and rendered some report. (Otherwise you only get your Rad with a TC mod).

Hope this makes sense.
