    Red face coding for Hyperbariac dives/plastic surgeon

    Promo: Code Books
    Has anyone ever billed medicare for HBO dives (99183)? What is the proper way to code since its done in 30 min units? Thanks for the help.

    Default Cpt 99183

    CPT 99183 is a "per session" code and not a time based code. You might be getting this code confused with C1300 which is calculated in 30 minute intervals.
