    We would like our Licensed Clinical Social Worker to provide palliative care services to home hospice patients. Are the "office or outpatient facility" psychiatry codes appropriate for billing Medicare?

    Take a look at G0155, which seems that it may be more appropriate and specific to the types of services rendered by this provider type.

    Good luck.

    I'm a newbie to psychiatry billing.

    Our LCSW is starting to do the same thing and seeing patients at their home. Is G0155 the correct code or is there something more specific? Maybe 99510?
