    Default Consult in the ER
    Medical Coding Books
    What set of cpt codes are appropriate for physicians called in for consults in the ER? I thought only 1 physician can bill out from 99281-99285 per visit to the ER.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!!

    Per CMS, the consultation in the ER is coded with 99281-99285 unless the consuting provider admits the patient.

    see the bottom of page 4....
