    Default CPT Guidance for definition of 'Infant'

    Promo: Code Books
    Can anyone please advise where I can find guidance about clarification of defining an 'Infant'? I have a chart that is charging CPT 73592, however, the child is going to be 3 yrs old on 12/09/09. This is going to hit the edits if not corrected. I would like to offer supporting info to our techs they can reference in the future to clear up age discrepancies.

    Thank you in advance for your time and advice.

    I don't know if this well help but in the critical care sevices section of E/M there is a large green section that states infants 29 days through 71 months of age and neonates are 28 days of age or less.
