Product Description

Here’s how to correctly implement the 2013 psychiatric coding changes.

Have you applied the current changes to your 2013 psychiatric coding? If you haven’t, you could be setting up your claim for a denial.

Simply circling the new codes won’t help you either. You need to know what to do when your physician documents an E/M service with psychotherapy. Are you well versed in time units? Discover whether they’re still important. Also, learn if you can report interactive diagnostic interview exams. Finally, you need to fully understand the new crisis psychotherapy add-on codes before you start billing them.

Bonus: You’ll walk away from this presentation with practical psychiatric coding advice, straight from expert presenter, Maxine Lewis. She’ll provide crossover tables to help illuminate how the psychiatric codes have changed for 2013.

This session will help you:

  • Draw the line between an initial evaluation with medical services done by a physician and an initial one done by a non-physician.
  • Calculate time according to CPT ‘time rules.’
  • Learn Interactive complexity, how to use add-on codes.
  • Apply the levels of E/M coding.
  • Learn diagnostic procedures and evaluation in psychiatry.
  • Draw comparison between 2012 to 2013 CPT codes.
  • Learn psychiatric therapeutic procedures and its coding.
  • Evaluation and management codes in psychiatry.
  • Levels of service at office/outpatient.
  • Get Details on Medical Decision Making in psychiatry.

Who should attend? Coders, managers, billers associated with psychiatric or mental health practices.
