When is a consult a consult??
I am seeking the opinion of fellow neurologists/neurophysiologists as to whether you consider clinical examination, history taking and explanation of results and discussion of management as part of the neurophysiology study or is it considered as a separate consultation? In my clinic I (as a Neurologist) personally exam the patient and take their history and based on this, set a test protocol which a neuroscientist then performs. I then see the patient in my office after the study is completed for discussion of the results and management recommendations, and I provide a detailed report back to the referring physician.
I would appreciate a simple yes or no response to the question: does the above process allow billing of an EDX study and a consultation?
Thanking you in advance.
