This is the first time our practice uses this code for a patient who has ADD... our practice is Family and the NP did the evaluation.
Do you have to be a psychiatrist to use the:
Psychotherapy, 30 minutes with patient and/or family member ( 90832) or can our family practice use this code? please let me know. thanks!!
