Intraoperative Consult

One of my physician's was called in for an intraoperative evaluation and a
recommendation for intraoperative positioning and possible revision of
external fixation of pelvic ring disruption. The patient was under
anesthesia already.

He evaluated the patient and then did a revision of the external fixator in
order for the surgeon to have better access to the abdomen. An ORIF of the
pelvic ring disruption was planned at another time once the patient was
more stable.

Can he bill for the intraoperative consult?

Thank you.
