What are some examples of procedures that could be billed separately from critical care(99291,99292)?

          The "critical care clock" stops when performing non-bundled, separately billable procedures.  In other words, time spent performing these procedures should not be included in the total critical care time reported.  Examples of common procedures that may be performed for a critically ill or injured patient include (but not limited to):
  1. CPR (92950) (while being performed)
  2. Endotracheal intubation (31500)
  3. Central line placement (36555, 36556)
  4. Intraosseous placement (36680)
  5. Tube thoracostomy (32551)
  6. Temporary transvenous pacemaker (33210)
  7. Electrocardiogram - routine ECG with at least 12 leads; interpretation and report only (93010)
  8. Elective  electrical cardioversion (92960)
