    Default Behavioral Health Coding - I am new to this arena

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am new to this arena and need to know where I can find a good resource for coding professional psychiatric E/M for outpatient visits such as medication management, partial hospitalization, inpatient, consults in the ED, etc. Do you utilize the 1997 E/M guidelines for this specialty coding.

    Thanks for any guidance and resource info anyone can share!

    Audio Educator has mental health specific information that you might find useful. They have a male speaker, Quinn Buechner (I think that's how you spell his name) that I've listened to.
