Can I bill 90792 / 90791 for follow-up psychiatric evaluations or is it only for initial evaluations? The CPT code book says this code can be billed multiple times just no in the same day.

90791/90792 are psychiatric services which are mostly used for initial treatment. Psychotherapy services are "90832-90838" and these are used as F/U psych evaluations.
Please see the parenthetical notes below 90792 to understand the usage of E/M codes with psychotherapy codes as well.
