Avoiding Mistakes in Behavioral Health Documentation and Coding

Staying compliant in behavioral health documentation and coding is important for proper reimbursement, documentation application and audit purposes.

Many coders, billers and even practitioners working in behavioral health services do not obtain the education needed to remain compliant. In today's rapidly changing environment, it is critical now more than ever to gain more knowledge of upcoming changes. This topic helps the persons responsible for providing and submitting payment to understand how first to establish a baseline understanding of guidelines, compliant billing practices, and documentation/payment guidelines. The material also explains the resources required for reimbursement in several aspects of the behavioral health process. Failing to have a compliant coding and billing practice is the most common error made by behavioral health offices. A compliant program is critical for proper reimbursement, documentation application and audit purposes.
