A patient was undergoing a hysterectomy. The surgeon called my surgeon in for an intraoperative consult regarding adhesions/possible colon mass. My surgeon came in, examined the colon, did not need to do any surgical intervention. He documented/dictated all of this. My question is - do I bill a consult, or do I bill a procedure? I am leaning toward a consult, but a coworker thinks it should be a surgery.
