possible limits on billing 96127 emotional/behavioral assessments

  1. Default possible limits on billing 96127 emotional/behavioral assessments
    Medical Coding Books
    My new boss says that we can only bill for these assessments once per patient. I see that we are allowed only 2 units on a claim but I can't see anywhere where it says bill only once per patient. Anybody out there have any other info on this?

    Default Four times
    You can bill this CPT code four time using four different instruments per visit. What Dx did you use with this CPT code?

    Default 96127
    Is anyone billing this to anyone but pediatric patients? Trying to find clarification on billing this for Medicare and older patients. Thanks.
