Hi,

Screenings are often used in all sorts of medical practices, from OB/GYN offices screening for depression or anxiety, to pediatric settings utilizing children’s behavioral assessments or screenings for adolescent eating disorders. Not only therapists and mental healthcare providers can benefit from the use of CPT Code 96127.

Thanks
