Description

This course will give you the latest information about insurance billing and coverage for video and phone psychotherapy sessions, and what is believed to be coming in 2023.  Will clients lose telehealth coverage, and if so, how can we prepare?  This presentation will share what is known, help you formulate better questions for health plans, and dispel common myths and misconceptions.  This information is aimed at psychotherapists nationwide, both in- and out-of-network.  Recorded on December 3, 2022, this self-study offers 2 hours 51 minutes of instruction from billing expert, Barbara Griswold.

  • Will plans keep covering phone sessions, and out-of-network providers?
  • The best (and worst) place to find coverage info.
  • How is documentation different for telehealth sessions?
  • What if you give up your office?  What address do you use on claims?
  • Will you be paid less for telehealth sessions?
  • Can you work with a client in a different state? (The answer may surprise you!)
