Thread: Critical care codes and hospice

    Unhappy Critical care codes and hospice

    AAPC: Back to School
    I was wondering if someone can tell me if CC codes 99291 and 99292 can be used for hospice patients? As long as the MD is not seeing other patients at the same time and the patient is having an organ system failure. Can someone please help. Thank you

    Here's a link to the Medicare claims processing manual. It's a long document but I think the portion you are looking for starts at about page 12. Hope this helps.
