Can a LCSW located in NJ bill medicare with 90806 for a session that is done over the phone when the patient moved to another state and wants to continue treatment. If so, is there a different CPT and POS we should be using?

Please Help!
Thank you!!

90806

I think your answer lays in the description of the code:
90806-Individual Psychotherapy, insight or oriented, hehavior modifying and/or supportive, in an office or outpatient facility, approximately 45 to 50 minutes face-to-face with the patient.
Hope this helps.

Edisto is correct. The encounter must be face to face to qualify as a 90806. The code to use would more likely be the non-physician telephone code.
