This is part of the good news.
No more consult codes means no more consult code requirements. For medicare these no longer exist so you don't have to have a requesting provider, you don't need a specific reason, you don't have to tell anyone what your opinion is anymore.
Will most providers continue to send letters back to the primary, my guess is yes. My providers do that anyway now even when they aren't consults. But they won't have to.
You will treat these just like any other new or established patients, no special documentation or reporting requirements.
