This video tutorial unravels the mysteries of performing and documenting E/M consult services. As if things weren't complicated enough already, on January 1, 2010, Medicare stopped paying for consult services completely. So what do you bill if you are asked to perform a "consult" on a Medicare patient in the office or in the hospital? This program includes a complete algorithm for billing for Medicare "consult" services in both the inpatient and outpatient settings. You will also see what documentation is needed when performing consults for private payers who still accept these codes. All levels of care are covered.
