For providers that may be adding behavioral health services to a primary care practice, you’ll need to be sure you’re getting reimbursed for these new services. That means knowing what you can bill for, learning a web of new codes and numbers, identifying which staff can be reimbursed for providing these services, and training staff to code services appropriately. National Council is inviting primary care providers and their behavioral health partners to join integration experts from primary care centers for a webinar on the practical ins and outs of billing for behavioral health services, to a variety of third-party payers, including Medicare and Medicaid.
Participants need to be ready to discuss the menu of billing options available that can match your center’s needs. After this webinar, participants will:
- Identify billing options for integrated behavioral health services;
- Ask questions to identify if Medicaid and Medicare numbers are appropriately linked to the mental health services provided; and
- Employ tips for working with clinical and billing staff at the same time.
This webinar will be held on Monday, June 6, at 2:00 pm. Practitioners and providers can register here.
