There are a couple books, Coding and billing for Behavioral health care and CPT handbook for psychiatrist. I also suggest reviewing your Medicare local guidelines. Granted not every payer uses the same guidelines, but it will give you a start.

90832-90838 Therapy codes, 90870 ECT, 90875-90876, 90838-90840 Crisis intervention, 90868 & 90869 TMS, 99492, 99493, 99494 Collaborative care. These are the main ones I use daily as well as any E&M code for medication management. Some Medicaid plans require modifiers like HO & AH. these are used in SC to distinguish social workers, therapists and clinical psychologist. I hope this helps.
