    AAPC: Back to School
    If a patient was seen at the hospital and radiologist read the xray. The patient was then
    referred to the orthopedic physician for a consult. The orthopist has a copy of the radiologist report for the consult. Can the orthopedist bill a 76140 for looking at the written report?
