We Offer Customized Billing Services

Psychiatry is a highly specialized field of medical care that requires thorough attention to detail. At Ensure MBS, we offer comprehensive revenue cycle management (RCM) services that encompass the entire billing process, including claims processing, rejection and denial handling, and compliance reviews. By outsourcing these administrative tasks, psychiatrists and medical staff can focus on providing the best possible care to their patients. Our behavioral health billing solutions streamline the reimbursement process with payers, ensuring that you receive timely and accurate payments without any complications.

Issues in Psychiatry Medical Billing

Psychiatry billing and coding can be complex, and the codes are updated every year, with payers changing their policies. It is difficult for a busy practice to keep up with all these changes while providing excellent service to patients. Though not unique to psychiatry, these are some of the challenges that make billing particularly difficult for the specialty. Fortunately, our mental health billing specialists are fully equipped to handle these challenges for you.

Complex Coding

Psychiatry codes include various codes for similar services. To indicate if an evaluation was done by a medical or non-medical provider, you must enter a different CPT code. This often poses a challenge for inexperienced coders as they may struggle to remember all the necessary details required to fill out claim forms accurately.Add-on codes are also common, but they can only be used along with a primary code. It is essential for psychiatry medical billing experts to know about these codes to ensure that both codes are present; otherwise, the claim will be denied.

Referrals are Necessary

In order to see a psychiatrist, patients will typically need to get a referral from their general practitioner. It’s crucial to ensure that the referral has been submitted to the payer before seeing the patient. To simplify things for patients, doctors often refer them to specialists within the same network of insurers to ensure that their treatment will be covered. As a result, psychiatrists need to be credentialed with as many insurers as possible, in addition to government payers.


Rules for Coverage

It is mandatory for all plans available in the Health Insurance Marketplace to include mental health and substance use disorder services under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). However, the ACA does not outline the specific services that must be covered, leading to a wide variation in coverage among plans. Even the same carrier may have different policies in different states.

Medicare offers mental health care coverage under separate parts: Part A for hospital insurance, Part B for medical insurance, and Part D for prescription drug coverage. Since patients may be enrolled in different options for each of these parts and may also have supplemental insurance, offering behavioral health billing services can be a complex and challenging task that requires specialized training and expertise. Professional billing companies are aware of these variations and can help file claims correctly.
