Behavioral health is a specialized area of coding that presents unique coding and billing challenges. To support the medical necessity requirements of Medicare and third-party payers, provider documentation for behavioral health services must include specific details such as time spent with patients, psychiatric history, and evaluation of response to treatment. Coders must interpret these clinical details and adhere to complex CPT® guidelines and Medicare billing restrictions for reporting these services.
