If you are a psychiatrist or work in a psychiatric office, you might already know that there are significant CPT code changes for 2013 for psychiatrists.

The main difference is medical services are isolated out via Evaluation and Management (E/M) codes, which are 99xxx in series. If medical services are performed with psychotherapy, an additional psychotherapy add-on code should be used as well. If psychotherapy is being performed without medicine services, the regular psychotherapy codes apply.

In addition to this difference, there is a new code for interactive complexity, and new codes for patients in crisis.

Given that E/M codes can vary based on whether or not a patient is new or established, as well as based on place of service, the code series for most people might have just become a bit more complicated.

Luckily, Provider Network Services understands these code changes and is ready to help you ensure your claims are paid in 2013.
