    It depends on the service but either initial or subsequent hospital codes are the ones to be used for Medicare

    If it is an inpatient Medicare consult, look at cpt 99221-99223 depending on the level. If it is an outpt Medicare consult, look at your new pt or est pt codes.
    Hope this helps ya
