TBHI is delighted to be launching a series of Q&A from our audiences. In this blog, then interspersed with our other news and features, we’ll post a question obtained from one of our Trainees. One such question will be drawn and answered regularly. While we can’t answer each question individually, we will try our very best to respond to all your queries. Send us your questions/enquiry/concerns by dropping an email here.
CPT Code: Can a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in private practice in Florida bill insurance companies/medicare for 96127 CPT Code?
Yes, social workers can bill in Florida or any other state, but you must know the state’s specific requirements, the payor’s requirements, how to deliver the service and how to bill according to the CPT code.
Short question – very long answer. Lots of variables. Take a basic telebehavioral health reimbursement course here to get a firm footing in what to ask, then approach a Telehealth Resource Center in your geographic area. Many don’t focus specifically on behavioral issues, so your taking the course could save you lots of time/billing that goes nowhere. Consider our online Telebehavioral Health Reimbursement Strategies Increasing Authorization & Payment course, offered with 3 CE hours that are recognized by most behavioral professional associations/licensing boards.
