Consider this example: Dr. Jones, a family doctor has been managing diabetes and HTN for her patient for two years. The patient’s clinical picture is worse now and Dr. Jones wants the opinion and advice of an endocrinology specialist, Dr. Anderson. Dr. Anderson performed a medically necessary history and examination with moderately complex MDM for the patient. What code should be assigned by Dr. Anderson today?
Office consultation for a new or established patient, which requires these three key components: an expanded problem focused history and examination and straightforward MDM.
T/F: Consultations can involve either new patients or established patients.
T/F: A consultation is a request for opinion or advice by one clinician of another clinician.
