This may be a strange question, but we have PPO insurance, and our new therapist will only bill generic codes for our couples therapy, which we are in as a result of my H's BP and the havoc it is playing in our marriage. She is willing to bill other codes, but she doesn't know what they are as she has never used anything else in her practice in an effort to protect her patients privacy issues - not wanting to reveal something "on record" like BP. (She is a Phd, with several doctorates.)
I told her my goal was for maximum reimbursement, that we pay a fortune for the insurance and therefore...we need to have them pay what they should at $175 per hour. But despite my best efforts, I cannot find the right CPT/ICD 9 or 10/DSM codes to use. Does ANYONE out there know what they would be for a BP II, rapid cycler, in conjoint (couples) therapy?
Thanks for your time. She said she is happy to use whatever code I give her, but it is on me to find. She is an excellent therapist, and is doing very well with us, but my H is ready to stop if we can't get reimbursed properly (or at least he is using that as the excuse...). But I am heartbroken at the idea of going this alone again...so PLEASE if anyone knows....let me know. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LFW
