Geriatric Psychiatry

    Default Geriatric Psychiatry
    Medical Coding Books
    If one of our general psychiatrists asks that one of our geriatric psychiatrists comes sees his patient (inpatient floor, physicians within same group), can we bill a 90801 or does it have to be an inpatient consult code? (The general psychiatrists did a 90801 initially now the geriatric psychiatrists is seeing the patient because he has expertise in that area). Thanks!
