Product Description

Learn tricks of the trade that optimize your mental health reimbursement.

Coders in family practice and internal medicine don’t deal with the amount of mental health coding that facility coders might face. But times are changing, and with patients being more aware of their mental health -- and more open to talking to their doctors about it -- you must know how to code correctly for things like depression, MMPI tests, counseling and more.

To keep your mental health coding skills sharpened, join nationally known coding expert Annette Grady, CPC, CCS-P, CPC-H, CPC-P, CPC-ORTHO in this one-hour teleconference. She’ll cover important ICD-9, HCPCS and CPT codes you’ll want to have handy, in addition to the documentation requirements that help get you paid.

Here's a sampling of what you’ll learn:

  • What insurance usually covers and what it doesn’t ... and some specific payer policy examples.
  • 1 Important part of the Welcome to Medicare package you should be taking advantage of today.
  • Why time is such an important E/M component -- and how to code it correctly for counseling sessions.
  • ICD-9s to know for an ADHD diagnosis ... and what to include in your documentation.
  • Don’t let time-based codes trip you up! Annette will show you what the payers want to see.
  • Navigate the HCPCS sea of mental health codes: Review G codes, M codes and S codes that you may find yourself reporting.
  • Remember PQRI: New Category II codes for depressive disorders and suicide risk that could land you a bonus from CMS.
