Psychology feedback 90837 and 90847 ??? Please help
« on: April 02, 2021, 03:22:15 PM »
I Work at a private Mental Health clinic, and I have a question about the CPT codes The Psychologist uses for feedback. He uses 90791 for the evaluation and then 96132, 96133, 96136, and 96137 with the amount of units for each code. Then when the patient comes for FEEDBACK, he will use the Psychotherapy code 90837 for feedback unless the family is involved, then he would use 90847, are these two codes valid for neuro-psyche feedback results? It normally is an hour so I get why he uses them, but is there a better way to code this feedback? I think somethings backwards..

When you say FEEDBACK are you referring to the results of the testing?

I believe the 96132 should also be used for the results:

CPT 96132 is designated as “Neuropsychological testing evaluation services by physician or other qualified healthcare professional, including integration of patient data, interpretation of standardized test results and clinical data, clinical decision making, treatment planning and report and interactive feedback to the patient, family member(s) or caregiver(s), when performed; first hour.”
