Consultations Codes - 99241-99275

4.4.1. Inpatient Consults
An initial or follow-up consultation visit occurs each time a provider, from other than the attending clinic service, provides advice/services/treatment to an inpatient on the hospital unit or ward (inpatient visit) but does not assume responsibility for medical control of the condition.

Follow current procedures for capturing consultation to inpatients, using the outpatient appointment type “walk-in.”  When prompted, “Is this Clinic Visit RELATED to Inpatient Episode of Care?” answer the question, “No.”  This will ensure credit is given to the appropriate B MEPRS code for services rendered.
