Respiratory Question for the Week of January 2, 2023


Do you have any tips for reporting code 92950?


Cardiopulmonary resuscitation is a covered service under the OPPS. The facility may bill this code one time per patient encounter. Since numerous departments respond to “code blue” situations, the facility should determine which department should submit CPT® code 92950 to assure consistency and avoid duplication in the reporting of the service. UB-04 revenue code assignment can vary based on the cost center where the service is provided. Choose the UB-04 revenue code that most closely matches the cost center where the service originates.
