I do the coding for 5 hospital owned family practice clinics. As of November 1st we are starting to code/charge as Provider Based clinics. Which means I will now start to facility code allong with professional. I thought I heard or read somewhere that Medicare was no longer recognizing the consultation 99241-99245 codes on the facility side. Has anyone out there heard that too or am I way off base? I know that I can still code the consults on the professional side but thought on the facilty side it changed to just using the office call level E/M codes 99201-99205 and 99211-99215 when a consultation service is renderred. :confused: Any help or information regarding this is greatly appreciated. :)
