Stop Errors & Boost Pay for Telehealth Services for Mental Health

Date: Thursday, May 30, 2024 1:00PM EST Length: 60 Minutes Expert: Dreama Sloan-Kelly, MD, CCS, CPC CEU: 1.0

Telehealth services for mental health can add a significant amount of money to your practice’s bottom line, but there is a catch.

You must be able to cut through the confusion of conflicting coding rules to correctly bill your telehealth services for mental health, but this is easier said than done. One recent audit found that more than half of mental health services performed over telemedicine are billed improperly, which means you are losing money.

Instead, you need an expert who can walk you through the process—and fortunately, one has arrived. On Thursday, May 30th at 1pm ET, physician and billing expert Dreama Sloan-Kelly, MD, CCS, CPC, is presenting a 60-minute online training specifically designed to help you more correctly bill for your telehealth services for mental health so you can finally get paid more of what you deserve.

Here is just a small sample of the easy-to-implement strategies you’ll receive that will help you more accurately bill and get paid for your telehealth services for mental health:

  • Stop incorrect use of telehealth code categories from reducing revenue
  • Collect more for audio only (no video) mental health visits
  • Accurately choose between group and individual therapy codes
  • Get paid for email communications with behavioral health patients
  • Head off easy-to-fix telehealth coding errors before they get you audited
  • Proven checklist to bring in cash when filling out forms for behavioral health patients
  • Fix holes in already-filed claims and amend documentation to ensure compliance
  • Pin down the top reasons telehealth claims get flagged for refunds and how to fix them
  • Apply diagnostic evaluation (90791-90792) and psychotherapy codes correctly
  • Correctly apply telehealth modifiers to sidestep payer denials
  • Match provider types with correct telehealth codes to get paid for non-physician time
  • And much more!

IMPORTANT: Federal and private payer auditors have made claims related to telehealth services for mental health claims a priority. This means that even an unintentional error can leave you on the hook to return payer reimbursement for overpayments or be required to pay hefty violation penalties. Don’t let this happen to you.

You can code your telehealth services for mental health claims more accurately and get paid more of what you deserve with the practical step-by-step billing tactics you’ll receive during this online training. Don’t let all-too-easy mistakes eat into your hard-earned revenue. Sign up for this expert-led online training today!
