We are currently billing using follow on rules not split shared. Per our MAC we divide the time into physician and APP lanes then divide the time per the critical care rules. In terms of distributing responsibilities:1. If the team has resident physicians then the attending bills on those patients2. APPs bill on their own patients. 3. For time during rounding, the attending bills that time and the APP does not. 4. The attending will also bill time separately during the day making sure it the time is not concurrent. We used shared billing for the non-critically ill patients. We are currently using the older rules but will likely move to the new rules next year. This will have a slight (<2%) impact on our billing.
