Can you tell me if there is a code for "collateral contact"

Susan Posted Thu 23rd of February, 2012 22:03:52 PM

Can you tell me of there is a code that can be used for "collateral contact" whereas a clinician or staff is communicating care with agencies for additional care and coordination of care for mental health facility, sober house, probation officer, child and family services, etc.?

I think there is no CPT for this, but of course you could use HCPCS Level II code H0031 for this.
