This webinar describes CPT coding for behavioral health services, including services performed by therapists, psychiatrists and psychiatric nurse practitioners and physician assistants. It will answer questions about how to code for initial evaluations, psychotherapy, medication management (with and without psychotherapy on the same day), psychotherapy for patients in crisis, and the interactive complexity add-on code. There are also additional ICD-10-CM codes effective for 2021.
