Movin’ Meat: Critical Care

Movin’ Meat: Critical Care
So what is “Critical Care” anyway?
The nice thing is that Medicare provided a very loose and vague definition, and left it to physicians to decide on a case by case basis.

Tremendous review of E&M Critical Care billing.

Our billing company called us together a year or two ago to point out that, in a facility that has 90K visits a year, accepts 2K transfers a year fo higher level of care, out CC billing didn’t even show up on a graph.

I would have been nice to have read the Movin Meat review, as we had been billing CC only for the care that really mpressed us, and not per the guideines.  We’re doing a touch better.
