Product Description

Receive Proper Reimbursement by Telling the Patient’s Full Mental Health Story


Every year around this time, there’s a lot of anticipation around the changes to the CPT® codes. And the complexity increases when modifications are introduced in documentation to ensure that your billing captures the patient’s story correctly. That means you’ll have to sharpen your coding skills before mental and behavior health code updates kick in on January 1, 2019, so that you can avoid medical necessity denials in the new year.

Learn the nuances of coding mental and behavioral disorders in this information-packed webinar presented by coding and billing expert Dorothy Steed. Steed will walk you through the new codes for psychological testing, developmental testing, and behavior identification assessment in this informative webinar. She will explain the documentation changes that will keep your supplementing documentation in line with the new requirements, and tell the patient’s full story with your coding to receive proper reimbursement for your services.

After attending this webinar, you will emerge well-versed with the new mental and behavior health codes. You will be ready to begin correct reporting, and will also be able to implement any documentation requirements necessary to support the reporting. Plus, you’ll be better prepared to survive payer scrutiny of your reporting.
