Product Description

New revenue opportunities for multiple, short inpatient E/M visits during the same day.

2009 will see some big reimbursement changes for mental health. Get ready for some major E/M coding revisions from CPT. Not only that, experts predict mental health professionals are likely to see outpatient work trend down and inpatient services trend up. That’s because in times of recession, patients are more likely to neglect their mental health until an inpatient-level mental health crisis emerges. Don’t worry about the new landscape emerging for mental health reimbursement. Spend an hour with coding and reimbursement expert Quin Buechner to keep your practice healthy during the tough times ahead.

2009 CPT UpdateTopics covered:

  • Farewell to mod 21 -- learn how many more minutes than usual put you into the 99354-99357 range.
  • New revenue opportunities for multiple, short inpatient E/M visits during the same day -- if you know the ropes.
  • Labs & prolonged service codes: What to do with the ‘face time’ dilemma.
  • OIG still on the prowl for incorrect coding involving incident to. How to keep your NPP claims squeaky clean.
  • ICD-10 will be here in 2 short years. How will you get ready? Tools you can’t afford to miss.
