no as of January 1 2010 CMS has said that we are not to use consult codes (99241-99245) for office visits also you are not to use consult codes (99251-99252) for hospital inpt. These codes are no longer recognized by CMS for Part B. (If you are coding for anyother type of insurance then it is at their discretion if they accept the codes or not. )
You would use new pt codes instead. Same applies for facility coding you would use new pt E/M codes.
If you have access to code correct it explains it pretty well or you can look it up in the firt quart for 2010
hope this helps.
