    Default Medicare consults (99241-99245)

    AAPC: Back to School
    Has anyone read/seen that Medicare will not be paying for these codes (99241-99245) as of 1/2010?

    Default Yes, that is the direction they are wanting to take

    That is in the 2010 proposed rule, it would be all consults inpatient and outpatient, and it is not finalized yet.
