The mental health insurance industry is highly saturated by managed care. This means that many times verification of benefits and certification for services is complicated by determining which entity has been subcontracted for which service. Psychiatric diagnoses differ from general medical diagnostic classification and coding. A general medical billing company may not be familiar with DSM classification. Especially as it pertains to psychological and neuropsychological testing, often times general medical billing companies do not understand the unique demands of billing for these services.
PDQ Billing Services billers ensure that the Documentation for individual Psychotherapy includes the patient's capacity to participate in and benefit from Psychotherapy. The estimated duration of treatment in terms of number of sessions are specified. The medical record documents that the treatment is expected to improve the health status or function of the patient. Target symptoms, goals of therapy, response to therapy, and methods of monitoring outcome have been documented.
Our billers ensure that the Documentation for group Psychotherapy indicates that cognitive skills, such as behavior modification, supportive interactions, and discussion of reality were applied to produce therapeutic change. The record documents the person's participation and an evaluation of its benefit or lack thereof.
