Question:

Our surgeon was called to the OR to perform and intraoperative consultation. How do we report this service?

Answer:

The service will be dependent on the payor. Report 9925X Inpatient Consultation if the payor still recognizes consultation services. Report 9922x or 9923x to Medicare based on the documentation.
