Product Description

Improve your mental health services' reimbursement and return.

Contrary to popular belief, audit-proofing your mental health practice doesn’t mean your reimbursement has to take a hit. You can continue to offer clients the services they need and get every penny your service is due if you communicate properly with your payers.

Find out more by joining mental health coding expert Quin Buechner, MS, MDiv, ACS-GI, CPC, CCP, CMSCS, during this 1-hour teleconference. He’ll teach you how to bring your psych coding and documentation to a more profitable level. You’ll also learn to spot common billing and coding errors that creep in from purely clinical needs in documentation.

Who should attend: All staff from coders and billers to non physician practitioners, to psychologists, psychiatrists and administration who work in mental health settings.

Join us for this jam-packed session where you’ll learn:

  • The latest coding and documentation requirements for mental health services.
  • How to prepare for payer inquiries and defend your services in the event of an audit.
  • Incident-to demystified: Turn over a fresh leaf with NPP billing procedures.
  • How often treatment plans need updates. The answer may surprise you!
  • The correct interrelationships between diagnostic systems.
  • Get the lowdown on E/M coding and specific coding requirements for overlooked services.
  • Are you aware of your payers' expectations? Take a look at current audit defenses and some example payer contracts.
  • Brush up on your business organization and charge capture process too!
