Thread: Critical Care E&M coding for facility

  1. #1

    Question Critical Care E&M coding for facility

    Promo: Code Books
    When a ED visist qualifies as critical care on the facility part, how do hospitals know what is bundled into the E&M code? At our facility the lab/respiratory department does their own charging. Certain testing and monitoring is included in the E&M code. What is the best way to prevent from charging these things with the critical care codes? How do other hospitals handle it.

    Default Refer to Coding Edge, June 2010

    FYI.. the best reference I have found regarding critical care coding is "Ten Commandments of Coding Critical Care in the ER" published in the June 2010 issue of the Coding Edge. This is a wonderful guide as to how to code critical care properly!
