Physicians enrolled in Minnesota Health Care Programs (MHCP) are eligible to provide consultation services.
Recipients enrolled in MHCP are eligible for physician consultation services.
When a medical physician requests an opinion from a psychiatrist about the recipient’s psychiatric condition, the psychiatrist may bill for a consultation. The consultation must be conducted face-to-face with the recipient.
When a psychiatrist requests a medical physician to assume responsibility for managing the recipient’s non-psychiatric medical care after an initial consultation, the medical physician may bill subsequent hospital care for the medical management of the recipient during the course of a recipient’s psychiatric hospitalization.
