    Anyone have any idea correct way to code for intra-op consults w/medicare

    Default 99499 - Unlisted E/M
    Because you cannot query the patient re history, and cannot perform a full exam, really you can't meet the standards for any of the consultations or initial hospital visit codes.

    Your best bet is to use the 99499, Unlisted E/M.

    Hope that helps.
