How are visits billed where the provider performs an eval in order to determine if the patient is able to comprehend and give consent for medical procedures. Example: Patient with PDD comes in because a Surrogate Decision Making Committee for needs to be filled out indicating the patient's ability to consent for medical treatment. Physician completes the form and psychiatric evaluation consisting of: Identification,k HPI, Psych Hx, Substance History, Medical History and ROS, Allergies, Medications, Developmental Hx, etc. including Axis I thru Axis V DX, however, no ongoing treatment is planned, these are one time evals. How would this be coded. At first I was thinking Consultation, but I have no written request from the other provider, so...the question is, are these appropriate to bill as a 90801? There are no ongoing goals to be listed in a treatment plan.
