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.
