    Default Newborn Care and Neonate/Pediatric Critical Care

    AAPC: Back to School
    I'm curious if anyone can direct me to easier to understand secondary source materials re: CPT codes for Newborn Care services (99460 - 99465) and Inpatient Neonatal Intensive care and Neonate/Pediatric Critical care services (99466 - 99480).
    These topics are all new codes with new or revised text in 2009. I ask because my copy of of Principles of Coding (2007 edition) obviously doesn't address these new codes. I'm preparing for a job interview at a large hospital system that has a separate Women's and Children's facility. My background is orthopedics and I want to be on top of this subject.
    I find the CPT 2009 text for these subjects difficult to pull together into cogent concepts.

    Thank you

    Default They ARE confusing

    I concur that they are confusing ... the age ranges alone are stated differently in several places.

    Still ... if you still want to discuss, feel free to contact me.

    I sent you a PM.
