Product Description

Mental Health Parity Act changes every psychologist must understand

Medicare and commercial payer audits are on the rise. The new Mental Health Parity Act means increased reimbursement for those who know how to use it, but it can mean legal trouble for those who are out of the loop. Master common CPT coding and billing issues that practicing psychologists encounter. Build your tool chest of knowledge and clarify some of the uncertainty on the new Act to avoid fraudulent situations in seemingly benign scenarios.

Topics covered:

  • Stop gap caps and implementation issues – what to watch for in payer contracts.
  • How the Act defines mental illness and substance abuse – learn the critical definitions.
  • Gear up for implementation in our office – all the dos and don’ts.
  • Possible CPT changes – will level 2H codes move to CPT?
  • What’s legal and what’s not in the eyes of Medicare and many commercial payers
