Can clarification be provided regarding the statement found in the MLN Matters Number: SE1010 Revised, page 8, "The split/shared rules applying to E/M services remain in effect, including those cases where services would previously have been reported by CPT consultation codes?"

Answer:
A previous MLN Matters article (MM4215) noted a change involving the consulting codes stating that a consult (CPT codes 99241-99255) could not be split/shared. Since Medicare no longer covers these codes and the above does not mention consults, but refers to all Evaluation and Management (E/M) visits, it appears that split/shared consults are allowed. However, please note that the physician must have done a face-to-face visit for the billing to be shared.
