There is n=just no real good way to do this. You cannot change the code and be successful because there is no equivalent crosswalk code for the consultation codes so your claim will not match the EOB. And the one office I know that has tried repeatedly to do this has discovered that it just does not work. If you are successful with changing the code (which they had to send via paper claim) chances are highly likely that the reimbursement you received from the primary for the consulation exceeds the Medicare allowable for the code you have chose to replace it.
