I would not let them bill any critical care codes until the charts are complete. That way you can catch everything. It is better to submit claims a few days or even a week later and have them be correct than to send them out immediately and have to refund.
Being the same group/same specialty you have to add all the time together and only bill 99291x1 and 99292x?, so you could have situations were some providers only spend 25 minutes, normally billed as an E/M but when you add them together with the other providers you have enough to support the critical care codes.
If you could create a master check off sheet that stays in the patients chart stating who did critical care and when, assuming they fill it out, that would also help with billing. In a perfect world...sigh.
Just my thoughts, good luck
