I'm getting caught up on the verbage in CPT about consults. “A consult is a type of evaluation and management service provided by a PHYSICIAN at the request of another physician or appropriate source” I interpret it to mean only a physician can perform the consult, but other providers can order a consult. The reason I ask is because I'm wondering if I can bill a consult for my PA or do I need to report subsequent hospital care codes. Since she didn't admit the patient I know I can't bill for the initial hospital care codes. Thanks in advance!
