Apply These Psychiatry Coding Tips With Expert Audio Conferences!

When your psychiatrist reviews the effects of drugs prescribed, you may be challenged by a thorny decision: whether to report 90862 or an E/M code for the encounter. Our expert presenter will show you when a psychiatric med management code fits best and when it’s better to apply an E/M code instead.

Having expert advice about the hottest psychiatry topics like this means you can boost your coding accuracy, decrease denials, and safeguard your payments. That’s why you should keep yourself current with psychiatry audio conferences.

 

You’ll find such conference topics as:

  • Brush Up on Anxiety Basics — Patients with generalized anxiety disorder experience excessive apprehension and fear over normal day-to-day situations that would not elicit the same response in an individual without the disorder. These apprehensions are long lasting, often running for a period of many months.
  • ICD-10 for Psychiatry – As a psychiatry coder, you frequently encounter patients suffering from generalized anxiety disorder. Reporting this condition accurately when the new ICD-10 codes come into effect will depend on specifics on anxiety type and noting the associated signs and symptoms. Get a head start on assigning the appropriate anxiety code -- and keeping your reimbursement flowing -- with the following advice.
  • Reimbursement Strategies: Lean On This Advice To Sort Out Primary Vs Secondary Payer Challenges – When a psychiatric patient is covered by two insurance companies, such as patients whose employer and spouse’s employer both provide mental health benefits, claims processing can be confusing. And when you factor in insurer carve-outs that may limit payment for mental health services, you’ve added another layer of complexity to primary and secondary payer billing for psychiatric cases. You can ethically maximize your practice’s reimbursement and reduce the costs of administering claims for patients covered by more than one payer if you understand coordination of benefits (COB) and how both insurers are supposed to pay.
  • And more!
