I hav been assigned to oversee the coding of mental health. I do not have the expertise on these two code: 90801, 90802 ans would gladly take any help I can get. My main concern is: is there a time limit as to how many times one can use either of these codes within a given time frame. Also if a Psyschiatrist uses it one facility can another use it within that time frame, is the Dr. the only one who can use this code or can a LMHC use these codes, and lastly, if this code was used in a inpatient basis, can it be used again in the outpatient setting.
Thank you for your assistance.
