You cant really code IV time based on "around". But let's say time is documented as an absolute 1100 start and an absolute stop at 1230.
Then yes, you would code 96360 for the 1st hour and 96361 for an additional hour. He gets to code this additional hour only because he met the defined time of 60 minutes 1/2 way (had 30 minutes).
If time had been 1100 to 1220 then all he would get would be the 96360. He did not meet the next hour 1/2 way (had only 20 min and needed 30 minutes). The left-over 20 minutes is just lost time and not codable
