Coding, Billing and Documenting Professional Psychological Services
Presenter: Antonio Puente, PhD
Date: Sunday, March 14, 2004
Time: 9:00am – 12:00pm Interactive lecture presentation
1:00pm - 4:00pm Workshop of model and actual notes
The morning conference will cover the history, procedures and limitations of the present approaches to coding, billing, and documenting professional psychological services. Coding will focus on CPT codes, from psychiatric to health and behavioral codes, and their applications across outpatient and inpatient situations. Billing will focus on a model involving location by service by diagnosis. Documentation, ranging from medical necessity to actual information needed, will be outlined. Specific attention will be given to fraud and abuse issues.
The afternoon workshop will involve individual and group assessment of model and actual professional services. It is anticipated that participants will bring examples of both their best and of questionable cases to review (seating is limited for the workshop portion of this course).
While the content of this conference and workshop will be advanced, practitioners who are beginning to develop their businesses will benefit from the model being presented and are encouraged to attend.
