If the other doctor already billed 88305-26, you can't bill another bx for it. I agree the "prepared elsewhere" description is probably something AMA didn't foresee in this riddle of a situation.
I don't think you're going to get anything better than 88321 since you are performing a consultation. The 88305 covered all material prepared. 88321 will only cover what is being sent to you for a second opinion.
