Can we bill preoperative clearance consultation as requested by the surgeon for 90 day global days procedure? what are the guidelines to follow while billing such services?

Huh? If you were asked to see a patient, you can bill it as a consult if not medicare.

re: preoperative clearance consultation

Were you asked to do the pre-operative clearance by the surgeon, or are you surgeon? If you are the surgeon then this is not billable. If you are a cardiac physician and the surgeon asked you to clear the patient because he has a heart problem, then you may bill the E/M (not a consult).
