Utah Psychological Association
3 Continuing Education Hours
Medical Coding is a foreign language. Clinicians who want to be properly paid for their professional services must become proficient in understanding the specific combinations of numbers and letters that are used to communicate to insurance companies what was done and why.
This course will teach mental health professionals everything they need to know about coding, documenting, and billing for their professional services. Guidelines from the 2021 CPT® manual for the following services will be reviewed: Diagnostic Evaluation, Psychotherapy, Interactive Complexity, Health Behavior Assessment/Intervention, and Psychological and Neuropsychological Testing. Tips and tricks for proper diagnosis coding will also be discussed, as well as many differences between ICD-10 and DSM 5. Some local payer guidelines will be explored.
Zoom link will be sent two days prior to the event.
