Self-referred New PatientIf we have a patient who self-refers to our physician for an initial new patient consultation as opposed to being referred by another physician, how do we code for the consult? Also, when our physician brings the patient back into the office for a follow-up consultation to discuss diagnostic results and treatment recommendations, how do we code? Both of these consultations include approximately one hour of face-to-face time with the physician.
