New CPT Codes are now required for Mental Health Services. Learn the most current and accurate coding procedures coupled with documentation tips to ensure prompt and optimal payment for future insurance claims.
Coding and Billing Strategies for Optimal Reimbursement
Don't be caught off guard without training on the new CPT code changes. Denials, delays, and "more information required" are increasingly common responses from Medicare, managed care, and insurance companies for behavioral health claims and requests for payment. Procedure code and policy changes have further complicated the reimbursement process for all social workers, psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists, counselors, and clinical nurse specialists. Consolidating all of the new requirements with existing code rules and implementing proven billing techniques are the objectives of this concise, one-day seminar. Participants will learn the most current and accurate coding procedures coupled with documentation tips and complete definitions to ensure prompt and optimal payment for future insurance claims.
