    Talking Critical Care Code

    AAPC: Back to School
    So in the April Coding Edge it talked about 99291 being used for 31 minutes or more. Anyone know more on this??????

    In order to use cc codes, it has to be 30 minutes or more. Perhaps it was a misprint?

    Thank you, I was thinking the same thing. I went crazy digging for information on this wondering if I had missed some kind of update. I read a lot last night on critical care so I could code accurately today and never found anything that stated 31 minutes.
