With the January 1 deadline past, Medicare is no longer accepting consult codes. However, the AAN is continuing its efforts to get an amendment passed that would delay implementation of the elimination of payment for consult codes. The AAN is working with other societies, pushing the issue on the hill, and contacting members of Congress. Neurology practices can continue billing private insurers for consultations.
Be sure to visit the AAN's consultation codes information page for the latest news.
