Yes, critical care can be billed by an anesthesiologist (not a CRNA). The patient must meet the critical care criteria and the same documentation requirements apply. In addition, the critical care service must be OUTSIDE of the anesthesia time and pre- and postoperative care services routinely performed by the anesthesiologist. Below is the NCCI link for Chapter 2Anesthesia Billing Guidelines which has limited reference to critical care but may be helpful.
