    Default ER patient & a consult by ortho

    AAPC: Back to School
    I'm new to the ED billing and need some clarification, please. A pt comes in ED with a dislocated finger. Ortho is called in for an attempt to relocate the finger......how is the E/M code billed? Or is it simply a consult code? or both with a modifier? Thanks for your help.

    Default Please clarify

    Please clarify ... are you coding for the ED physician
    or for the Ortho doc
    or for both
    or for the hospital?

    Is this for ED physician coding only?
