If they occur in basic solutions, the steps are the same, except for when you balance one side with H+ you need to balance both sides with the same amount of OH-, so that there is H20 on one side and OH- on the other side.
In acidic redox reactions, you use H+ to balance the hydrogens in the reaction. In basic redox reactions, you need to use H20 and OH- in a sort of back-and-forth balance. Basic reactions have an "extra step" where you can't just balance O and H with H+ and H2O.
