You will need to check on your state's work comp regulations. In our state, when a WC patient is seen for a new work related illness/injury, it is a new patient (or consult) code, even if the provider has seen that patient previously - even if for another work comp case. Some want the NP code charged, while others want the consult code - depending on episode of care, did the case manager request a consultation, etc.
