Start and end times

    Question Start and end times
    Medical Coding Books
    This question came from a provider outside of my billing service. Not sure of what kind of system they have. he started anesthesia at 11:30 pm and ended at 1:30 am. Is there a protocol for times leading into the next day? Our system automatically calculates time and units but for some reason their system does not do that. Any suggestions on how to get this claim thru? Thanks.

    Put in box 19 or corresponding electronic section
    Start 23 30 End 01 30

    which would should represent 120 minutes/ 8 units

    Might require miltary time
