.......I know I saw on a post that if it was a medicare pt, you could (code a consult). If regular commercial insurance, you have to bill the outpatient codes.
You have it backwards.
It is Medicare that does not recognize 99241-99255 consult codes. There are also non-medicare payers that have followed this lead. Other non-medicare payers will recognize and pay the consult codes. You will have to verify how you payers are processing
