I have the same question!
Everything I found on Codecorrect (quoted below) seems to really push the OR as a room only used for procedures:
"100-04 Claims Processing Manual Section 040
Chapter 12-Physician Billing
Subject Physicians/Nonphysicians Practitioners - Section 40 - Surgeons and Global Surgery
Treatment for postoperative complications which requires a return trip to the operating room (OR). An OR for this purpose is defined as a place of service specifically equipped and staffed for the sole purpose of performing procedures. The term includes a cardiac catheterization suite, a laser suite, and an endoscopy suite. It does not include a patientâ€™s room, a minor treatment room, a recovery room, or an intensive care unit (unless the patientâ€™s condition was so critical there would be insufficient time for transportation to an OR);"
Anyone else have insight on this scenario?
