Hello fellow psych coders,

I am new to psychiatry and have not found a lot of helpful information on coding psych. There is some, such as the APA and books by Chester Schmidt. There are a few courses and such offered, but they look like they are mostly for physicians rather than coders.

I think it would be great to start an email network of psych coders, where we could send out quick questions to each other during the work day and they could be answered by anyone who has a minute to help out. We could help each other out and maybe we could all do the best possible job with our psych coding.

This is what my colleagues and I do where I work, and it works so well! The only problem is: none of us has much experience with psych coding.

Please post your email address to add to the list, or just say what you think of this idea.
Hi All! I was wondering if any of the Psych coders out there have experience with billing for Neuropsych testing services for Psy. Ds? I am having a tough time and just wanted to make sure I'm doing everything correctly. Thanks!!!!

Look in the cpt book in the 90804-90899 range to find the equivalent. It would depend on whether it is inpatient, outpatient, initial, subsequent, and time. I hope this helps!

I mostly code Geropsychiatric patients that are seen for medical issues that create the mental issues and use code set 90801, 99231, 99232, and 99233. It would be great to get some more info on this broad field and increase my skills. Thanks.

Psych coding email group

So who is setting this up because, to my knowledge, it hasn't started up yet. Who is in charge of this? If no one knows then do we have any volunteers to go through the threads and collect the email addresses to at least BEGIN the group email? I know that all of you have questions, otherwise we wouldn't be replying to this thread. lol!

I mean no harm so I hope that I haven't offended anyone. Let's make this happen! GEAUX TEAM PSYCHOS!!! :D
