You can only bill for one E/M code for same date of service for the senario you listed. What are their separate specialties? The only orthopaedic Drs. that are considered separate specialties are UPPER EXTREMITITEY Drs, so if your spine Dr. did an office visit for the spine,etc.....than the upper extremity Dr. saw the patient for upper extrem.problem that was not related to the cervical spine problem (phanlanx fracture, carpal tunnel, etc...) then you could bill for each.
