New CPT requirements for Behavioral Health
« on: December 12, 2016, 10:59:02 AM »
Has anyone seen or heard anything new about how to use the existing CPT codes for psychotherapy visits?  One of my Psychologists read that 90846 can be billed along with 90832-90837 on the same day.  I haven't been able to find anything on line yet.

I have not seen anything recently announced.  You can bill the 90846 along with the 90832-90837.  The question is, is it allowed by the insurance.  Most insurances do not reimburse for individual and family therapy on the same date of service.
