    Default hospital consultation

    AAPC: Back to School
    If a physician sees a pt as a consultation in the hospital and signs off as his treatment being complete, but gets re-consulted within 2 days new dx code could that be charged as another consult code?

    Per CMS guidelines no. Only 1 consult per admission.
