Is it common for dentists to bill consult codes in an out-patient/in-patient hospital setting?
99241-99245 & 99251-99255.
Since consult codes are no longer recognized or paid by insurance carriers, depending what the DDS saw the patient for and what part of the hospital the patient was seen you would use the following code set series.
In-Patient Hospital 99221-99223
