Product Description

CPT has defined guidelines about the how and why of a consultation… CMS has deleted the codes entirely.

Either of these changes separately is noteworthy - Combined they are confusing and controversial.

  • CPT Changes:
    • Consultation - What’s new?
    • Documentation of the request - Is it now easier to document?
    • Transfer of care - How does this compare to a Consultation?
  • CMS/Medicare: Deleting of Consultation Codes:
    • What did Medicare do?
    • How to report this redefined "encounter" a patient in the inpatient and outpatient setting?
      • Are they different?
    • Does a request for a "consultation" create a problem?
  • Have other insurances? Know whose rules to follow.
  • Are there still unanswered questions?
