Critical care codes are provider specific. If two separate providers did two separate CC encounters, then I'd bill the 99291 for each of them, for the first 30 minutes and any additional time with 99292 (as allowed by CPT).
You cannot mix critical care time for multiple providers or your documentation will not stand up to review and the prepayment edits will likely cause a claim denial since 99292 is an add-on code. Software will typically look for 99291 under the provider number first. If you split them, the 99292 will deny since the 99291 would be under another provider.
