Thread: Consult and pap under anesthesia

  1. #1

    Default Consult and pap under anesthesia

    AAPC: CPC Promo
    Hi, I have a patient that was already admitted to the hospital and our doctor was called for a consult. After the consult, our doctor needed to do an exam under anesthesia and pap smear. My question is can I bill for both the consult and the exam since both were done on the same day? Help!!

    I think you are okay to bill out both CPT codes on the same day. I checked CCI on some of the consultation codes and the pelvic exam under anesthesia code 57410 and they don't hit an edit.
