Crisis and Add On Codes

billing Jun 11, 2019
 

Hi, this is Dave Kats with Therapist Consultants and I have a tip for you.

Do you remember when the new codes came out? We talked about so many different things with these codes. Something new that had been added was add-on codes. Well, I find that most therapists aren't using the add-on codes. There are certain add-on codes and I'm not going to list them for you but you can look them up. Just go to add-on codes for mental health practice, CPT add-on codes for mental health practice, and it will bring those add-on codes up. Some of the ways you use an add-on code is when a patient is in crisis, you bill your add-on codes. You bill those add-on codes or you bill a new code for a patient in crisis. You have to look at those things. Also, with things like play therapy or if you have language as a barrier, you can do an extra charge using these add-on codes. Like I said, I'm not going to list all the add-on codes for you or the other codes for you but make sure that you just look them up online and then start using these add-on codes. It's going to add revenue. You're already doing the work and you deserve to be paid for it, so why not bill it out.

This is Dave Kats. Thanks for listening.
