Yes, you could bill a consult for this patient if the referring physician is asking your provider for advice, opinion, recommendations, suggestion, direction, or counsel in the evaluation or treatment of this patient. The referring physician anticipates continuing to treat the patient's condition.
If the referring is requesting your physician to assume responsibility for management of the patient's care for that condition and doesn't expect to continue to treat the condition then an established patient visit would be appropriate.
Hope this helps,
