Mental Health Word Cloud Alt CE Logo

When you provide much needed access to developmental, behavioral, and mental health care in your primary care setting, how can you be sure you’re charting and coding to receive maximum reimbursement? This in-depth module co-written by four experts walks you through common coding dilemmas plus four case studies to strengthen your skills and increase your confidence. Includes more than 80 slides!

You’ll explore:
  • Common Codable Behavioral/Mental Health Services Provided in Primary Care
  • Evaluation & Management Coding
  • Time-Based Coding
  • Interactive Complexity
  • Charting Elements to Support Coding & Other Documentation Considerations
  • 4 Case-Based Scenarios Submitted by Actively Practicing Pediatric NPs
This module is the second in a two-part series related to coding and reimbursement for pediatric behavioral mental health.

If you have not explored part 1 entitled Pediatric Behavioral Health in Primary Care, it reviews existing frameworks of integrated behavioral health, the Pediatric Primary Care Mental Health Specialist (PMHS) role in facilitating this care, and an introduction to charting elements that support coding for reimbursement when providing behavioral care in your practice.

You are not required to complete part 1 before learning from this second module.
