Psychiatric Coding

Rigpa Posted Fri 11th of January, 2013 20:13:07 PM

Category is Psychiatry
For E/M and 45 min Psychotherapy in 2012 I could use 90807.
In 2013 do I have to dues E/M as one code e.g 90791 and then add an additional code e.g. 90834.
In 2013 the E/M is billed as a seperate code by itself and Therapy as a seperate code by itself.
Kindly respond.

Use 90836 for this in 2013.

Psychotherapy, 45 minutes with patient and/or family member when performed with an evaluation and management service (List separately in addition to the code for primary procedure)
(Use 90836 in conjunction with 99201-99255, 99304-99337, 99341-99350)
