Questions and Answers on Reporting Physician Consultation Services Released

CMS has released an Q & A article on its Medicare Learning Network regarding billing for physician consultative services. The article is for physicians and non-physician practitioners (NPPs) who perform initial evaluation and management (E/M) services previously reported by Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) consultation codes for Medicare beneficiaries and submit claims to Medicare Carriers and/or Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) for those services. It is also intended for Method II critical access hospitals, which bill for the services of those physicians and NPPs who have reassigned their billing rights, and hospices where the hospice bills Part A for the services of physicians on staff or working under arrangement with the hospice.
