Thread: ER Physician Consults

    Default ER Physician Consults

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can a consult be billed if request for a consult from an ER physician is
    requested? ie: Acute care clinic request a consult from an ER physician.

    Default Depends on Payor

    If the documentation requirements are met and it isn't a Medicare(or any other payor that doesn't recognize consults), a consult can be coded. At least until the consult codes completely go away.
