Coding and Billing for Mental Health Services by Sherry Marchand

PROGRAM DETAILS

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.

  • Discuss problem areas of documentation for mental health services
  • Documentation necessary to support reimbursement
  • Apply Medicare rules and payment policy
  • Apply Medicare rules for clinical psychologist and clinical social worker services
  • Discuss reimbursement strategies for inpatient and partial hospital services
