I used to work for a Neurologist who had another Neurologist come to the office every Thursday evening expressly to perform EMG's. This 2nd Neurologist never charged for a consultation because he went straight to the task of performing the EMGs based solely on my docs findings.
However, when an outside physician requested EMGs, they also requested this doctors opinion as to what the diagnosis might be and recommendation(s) for treatment. In this instance, the Neuro performing the EMGs always took a complete history, performed a fairly in-depth examination and rendered a diagnosis based on this examination and on the EMGs and NCV's. He billed a consult with a -25 modifier and the electromyographic studies.
Hope this sheds a little light on the situation.
