    Default Consult Medical Necessity

    AAPC: Back to School
    A pre op consult needs the pre op code, is the second code the reason for the surgery or the reason for the medical clearance?

    First is pre-op V code, followed by reason for surgery, followed by other conditions (i.e. DM, HTN, etc).
