    Default Audit Tool for CC encounters

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am very familiar with the Highmark Tool for chart audits; but is there a similar tool around for critical care encounters? Since the requirements are so different this tool does not really apply. Wonder if others are using a specific tool or have developed a tool based on the current CPT guidelines for 99291 and 99292 that they may be willing to share.

    Thank you in advance!

    Default Three elements

    Patient must be critically ill.
    Care provided must be critical care.
    At least 30 minutes critical care must be provided.

    That's "all" you need.

    Hope that helps.
