Be very careful reporting critical care codes and make sure that it is clearly documented that that was what was done by your doc. Check in the critical coding guidelines in your ICD-9 coding book first and go by that. Critical care should only be used when there is a life threatening condition or critical illness. First, ask yourself if the patient has either of those? Always make sure that your documentation supports your code selection.
