Thread: CPT Code question re: times on psychiatry

    Default CPT Code question re: times on psychiatry

    AAPC: Back to School
    Which CPT code would best reflect a 60min session? 90806/7- 45 to 50min or 90808/9 - 75 to 80min? Both face-to-face.
    What about 65min?

    Sounds like you would probably have to go with 90806/7.

    You cannot charge 90808/9 - 75 to 80min if it was only 60. You'll have to go one level down. Same with 65 min.
