    Can you bill a critical care 99291 with a observation code

  2. SuperCoder Posted 5 month(s) ago

    Greetings from SuperCoder.com!

     

    When a hospital inpatient or office/outpatient evaluation and management service (E/M) are furnished on a calendar date at which time the patient does not require critical care and the patient subsequently requires critical care, both the critical Care Services (CPT codes 99291 and 99292) and the previous E/M service may be paid on the same date of service.

     

    Please feel free to write if you have any questions.

     

    Thanks.
