    Unhappy E/M coding critical care

    AAPC: Back to School
    How often can the codes 99291 and 99292 be used on 1 patient who has no upgrade in their condition.

    Default As long as ...

    As long as the patient remains critically ill and the care provided meets the criterion for critical care.

    Each note stands alone and must meet the documentation requirements for the code selected.

    Hope that helps.
