If a patient is consulted with a specialist on one day, the specialist performs the surgery the subsequent day, is the "consult" considered a pre op or can he expect reimbursement? Since consults are not billed any longer, I'm not sure what the correct answer is.

Thank you Debra, it appears I left off the 57 modifier after going back and checking the claim.
