My provider "read somewhere" that Medicare is allowing subtraction of standardized times for separately billable procedures with Critical Care Time instead of exact time reporting. For example, he documented "120 minutes of CCT including time spent inserting Central Line" and he wants me to find the average time spent inserting a central line, subtract it from his total, and bill out that amount of CCT.

I can't find anything written to support this policy - has anyone else heard something like this? And have you seen anything in writing?
