CMS Eliminates Consults - will this affect your revenues?
Beginning January 1, 2010
, CMS has eliminated the use of all consultation codes (inpatient and office/outpatient codes for various places of service except for telehealth consultation G-codes).
In an effort to calm providers on the elimination of consults, CMS has increased the work RVUs for
new and established office visits, initial hospital and initial nursing facility visits, and have made adjustments for the increased use of these codes into the practice expense and malpractice RVU calculations.
MedPro has prepared a summary of these changes in an easy-to-follow format. Find out how these changes are going to affect your bottom-line by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
