depends on who you're billing, if it's Medicare, then probably yes because they dont accept consult codes anymore, but for other insurance, I would use the outpatient consult codes. From what I know the only person who can bill the ER codes is the attending, and anyone else that's called in to consult should use the consult codes. same thing for the initial and subsequent hospital codes.
