    AAPC: Back to School
    but what codes should I use in outpatient settings (ED) critical care pt less that 6 y/o?

  2. #2


    as per my previous post, all ages for outpatient critical care, is reported with 99291-99292

    Refer to your CPT book under "Critical Care Age 5 Years or Younger", it specifically states, "critical care services to an outpatient - use codes 99291-99292"
