This guide will discuss CPT® coding for behavioral health services. It includes services performed by therapists, psychiatrists and psychiatric nurse practitioners and physician assistants.
This guide will answer questions about how to code for:
- Initial evaluations
- Medication management
Some sections are separated by type of clinician, because physicians, NPs and PAs have a different scope of practice than psychologists, social workers and other licensed mental health professionals.
Table of Contents
- Psychiatric Diagnostic Evaluation
- Medication Management
