Hi, Alka. I looked in the Consultations section of the CPT 2007 (I don't have a 2008 edition) and it says that any specifically identifiable procedure (i.e., identified with a specific CPT code) performed on or after the date of the initial consultation should be reported by the consulting specialist.
So any services such as radiologic dx/manipulation/reduction/fixation should be reported on separate line(s) of your claim, or else those services will not be reimbursed by the insurance carrier.
Anyone out there who may be reading this, please correct me if I am wrong.
