Who Should Attend
This workshop is designed for psychiatrists and their new or experienced billing and coding staff who want to stay current with new information, rules and policies that impact billing for mental health services.
Why You Need to Attend
There will be significant changes for coding and billing of psychiatric services beginning on January 1, 2013 - including the elimination of CPT code 90862! A comprehensive review of the codes in the Psychiatry section of CPT by the AMA CPT Editorial Panel has resulted in the creation of new codes and the revision of some existing codes to more accurately reflect the way psychiatry is practiced today. The APA actively participated in the shaping and development of the new codes and coding schema that will describe the work of psychiatrists, advanced practice nurses, psychologists, and social workers.
This new coding framework is the result of the work of an AMA-convened workgroup that included representatives from the AMA CPT panel, the APA, the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, the American Nurses Association, the American Psychiatric Nurses Association, the American Psychological Association, and the National Association of Social Workers.
This workshop will provide psychiatrists and their staffs with the information and skills needed to ensure accurate coding and documentation when providing services related to therapy, psychopharmacology, evaluation and management, and neuropsych - whether in private practices, nursing homes, day treatment centers, community mental health centers and/or hospitals.
