Stop Leaving Money On The Table In Your Critical Care Facility. Get All the Moneymaking Strategies Here !


Each medicine specialty has its own nuances but Critical Care is a code that can be used by all specialists:  hospitalist; pulmonologist; internist; cardiologist, etc. This is “the direct delivery by a physician of medical care for a critically ill or critically injured patient.” Although Critical Care can be performed at various locations (ICU, regular floor or even office), but the documentation requirements don’t change.  

True, documentation is the key to capturing all procedures not bundled; and avoiding problems when 2 physicians bill for Critical Care on the same patient on the same day; proving medical necessity; showing when a family meeting meets the critical care requirements. How to document critical care efficiently and effectively is an issue that you can handle efficiently now.

Similarly, learning what is included in the Critical Care code is important but knowing what is NOT included can equate to lost revenue if not identified and billed.

Join our coding expert Jill M. Young, CPC, CEDC, CIMC as she clears up critical care coding and documentation confusions so you can reap the payments you deserve.
