Below are CPT codes (standard insurance descriptors) that I bill. I am knowledgeable about reimbursements and bill for the highest level that is appropriate; however, variations exist depending on specific insurances.
The most common codes are below. If your insurance does not cover the codes listed in bold, it is likely they will cover one of the other codes, but at a lower rate. If you wish to ask your insurer what they will reimburse for, they may wish to know my Tax Identification Number (275362332) and NPI (1114005584). A common “diagnosis” code used is unspecified episodic mood disorder (F39), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (F90.9) or anxiety disorder unspecified (F41.9) . That information should be sufficient for your insurance to advise you. Since I have submitted claims to many insurers they should be able to provide you with a clear answer of what they will reimburse you.
