  • experience with new 2013 CPT codes in psychiatry?

    I am not in private practice, but our billing sheets now carry new CPT codes.
    I was wondering if someone is in psychiatric private practice, what kind of reimbursement you can now get?
    For example:
    - 90792 (any inside on Medicare reimbursement and private insurances)?
    - 99215

    Thank you!

    I'm still in residency but they gave us numbers at career development class. I'm pretty much sure it's State specific and depends on how you negotiate with insurance company.

    Some numbers:

    90792: Medicaid 116.44, Medicare 120.35, Average Blue Cross/Aetna 171.51

    99215: Medicaid 127.28, Medicare 132.08, Private 169.47

      Oh, so level 5 follow up pays the same as new eval :(

      I wonder how many psychiatrists are in network and do you even get paid all of this money.
      I guess, if you are out of network, then you can charge more, but will have less patients (because they also have higher deductable)
