CPT Guidelines state only one Physician can code the CC episode if the physicians are both with the same group. So you have to combine the 35 + 40 minutes and code/bill for 1 hour of CC time with 99291 and 99292 for the extra 15 minutes.
Ask them both to decide who wants to take this episode for coding and billing. For me, I would probably code/bill under the physician that had the most time.
Is that all they did? Remember CCare is coded in addition to any other E&M service that same day. Meaning if your Physician was called to the ER to eval and admit the patient and the patient crashed, he can still code for his InPt initial 99221-99223 plus the CCare episode
