BIL-002: Reinstatement of Consultation Codes

Reinstatement of Consultation Codes: The Wisconsin Medical Society fervently requests the AMA to devote its advocacy focus and energy to the reversal of decisions to eliminate the use of service codes for consultation services. The Society will work with Wisconsin health plans and insurance firms, as well as with Wisconsin Medicaid, to assure that consultation services can be billed and paid for using consultation codes when claims are submitted; and to inform them of the Society’s advocacy efforts to the AMA on such matters.
