This webinar has been updated to include the critical care billing rules CMS released on January 1, 2022.

Professional CPT coding for critical care has been under a lot of scrutiny since 2018, when it was placed on the OIG workplan. During this webinar, we take an in-depth look at the definition of critical care and what documentation is needed to support medical necessity. We discuss complex scenarios like billing critical care during the global period of a major surgery, and when multiple providers document critical care on the same date of service.


  • Define critical care
  • Identify key documentation elements needed to support medical necessity
  • Recognize when critical care can be reported during the global period
  • Generate accurate reporting of multiple providers performing critical care
