What ER Consult CPT code is equivalent to office visit code 99244?

Thank you for your question.

When a provider is called in for advice/opinion and sees a patient in the emergency department (ED), he or she may bill a consultation, 99241-99245. The ED is an outpatient location therefore outpatient consultation codes are used.
