2013 New Psychotherapy Billing Codes

Beginning Jan. 1, 2013 all mental health providers must use new CPT codes for psychotherapy when billing insurance carriers, including Medicare. The fundamental services underlying these new codes will not change. This transition is a result of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Five-Year Review of the psychotherapy codes conducted by the American Medical Association (AMA).
