Why Should You Attend:

Many coders and physicians has encountered many challenges when trying to understand the documentation guidelines for Critical Care services and the correct code set to use. This is partly due to the fact that the CMS guidelines and CPT rules are slightly different when defining what is a critical care service.

This webinar is designed to clearly define and apply these Critical Care guidelines for all ages and to identify other billing opportunities for other services performed in conjunction with Critical Care services. It will also review the requirements for Critical Care billing when the physician is working with Non-physician practitioners, residents and/or medical students.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

Review Critical Care requirements from both a CMS and CPT perspective.
Discuss documentation required to support critical care codes, as well as documentation necessary when working with a Non-physician practitioner, resident and/or medical student.
Choose between adult, neonate, and pediatric critical care codes
Identify bundled services.
Identify common billable services performed in conjunction with critical care
