Well, here's the info on Pro Fee Rad.
If you're Doc is reading X-rays, he/she would bill the X-ray/CT/MRI, etc with a 26 mod on the Rad codes. There must be a written report for these services.
That Consult code you mentioned is for when a "second opinion" or the like is requested of a Radiologist. He/She did not have to be present when the x-ray was taken, but a report of his/her specific read must be placed in the chart. I see this often when a patient is transferred. Hospital A did a CT; when the patient was tranferred to Hosp B, the films came with him/her. The Rad at Hospital B is asked to read the CT (whether or not it has been read before) and provide his/her opinion--Consult. No mod-26 is added to 76140.
I'm not sure this helps, but private message me if you need to be more specific. Be happy to help.
