Mental Health CPT Codes: The Definitive Guide [2022]

CPT (Current Procedural Terminology) is a standardized medical codeset maintained by the AMA.  CPT codes are five digit numeric codes describing everything from surgery to radiology to psychotherapy.

CPT Codes are different from Diagnosis Codes or ICD10 F-Codes for billing and coding your insurance claims.  Here’s our mental health diagnosis code list if you need to look one up.

For therapists that are on managed care panels or provide superbills to their clients, knowing your CPT codes is paramount to getting paid in full and avoiding insurance audits.

The amount insurance companies will reimburse depends on a number of different factors (professional credentials, geographic location, etc.), but using the correct CPT Code and add-on code(s) to express the exact service is an important part to the whole process and in ultimately determining your payment!

Errors, accidental or otherwise, will directly impact insurance company’s payment of services.   If you need help with making sure your billing and coding is error-free, our mental health billing service can help.

CPT Coding for Therapy

CPT coding for psychotherapy doesn’t have to be difficult!  There are an overwhelming amount of total CPT Codes (~8,000), however only 24 are specifically designated for psychotherapy and other mental health services.

To make matters even simpler, nearly all therapists will regularly use an even smaller subset of these 24.

CPT is a large and dynamic code set that changes year to year, but the psychotherapy codes seldom change.

The most recent change for psychotherapy codes took place in 2019, then 2013, and previously 1998.

To ensure your coding is current and up to date, consider using a billing service instead of having to remember all the codes.

Behavioral Health CPT Add-On Codes

A CPT Add-on Code is a code describing a service performed in in conjunction with a primary service. Many of these add-on codes are associated with a specific CPT Code or a small set of CPT Codes and cannot be used otherwise.

For instance, the behavioral health CPT Code for interactive complexity (+90785) can be used for a diagnostic (90791, 90792) or a normal psychotherapy session (90832, 90834, 90837) but not a crisis psychotherapy session (90839).

Add-on Codes are identified by a + sign in front of the number, i. e. +90840 is an add-on code for extra time in the case of crisis psychotherapy.

On CMS 1500 forms CPT Add-on codes are simply added on a new line.

Add-on codes are extremely important to use in order to most accurately describe the services being rendered and to ensure your services are maximized per session.

We help the mental health providers that work with us in our billing service do all of this for every appointment.

Mental Health Evaluation & Management (E/M) Codes

There are also E/M (evaluation & management) in conjunction with psychotherapy, used by authorized prescribers, psychiatrists, and MDs.

Coding E/M is trickier, harder to document and more vulnerable to audit but usually results in greater reimbursement.

There’s also a series of E/M codes that are used without the psychotherapy component.

For more in-depth coverage on E/M coding for psychotherapy there are some good free webinars released by AACAP on E/M CPT Codes.

  • Add-on CPT Code +90833 – E/M code for 30 minutes of psychiatry (used with 90832).
  • Add-on CPT Code +90836 – E/M code for 45 minutes of psychiatry (used with 90834).
  • Add-on CPT Code +90838 – E/M code for 60 minutes of psychotherapy (used with 90837).

Key Points
  • Psychotherapy must be at least 16 minutes.
  • Time is very important and should be rounded to the nearest CPT Code.
  • Outpatient vs. Inpatient is not important.
  • E/M codes can only be used by prescribers (MD, DO, APN, PA).

Interactive Complexity (+90785):  Criteria and How to Bill

+90785 is one of the new add-on codes in the most recent CPT update in 2013.

This code is used as an umbrella add-on code and can be used for four different criteria. The most common scenarios usually involve children, although this is not necessarily always the case.

Common Examples of Interactive Complexity:

  • The use of play equipment with young children.
  • Interpreters/translators.
  • Involvement of parents with discordant views that complicate the treatment plan.
  • Report of abuse/neglect.

Interactive complexity can be used in conjunction with the primary CPT Codes for diagnostics, psychotherapy, or group therapy and cannot be used for couple/family therapy or crisis codes.

+90785, can be used with: 90791, 90792, 90832, 90833, 90834, 90836, 90837, 90838, 90853.

Unsure when to use the interactive complexity code?  Need help asking if it will be approved?  Our billing service exclusively for mental health providers is here to help.

Am I Being Underpaid? Was I Paid the Right Amount?

Here’s typical rates depending on the therapist’s credentials:

Typical Reimbursements by Type of Therapist
Type of TherapistReimbursement/Session
Social Workers~$55-60
Marriage Family Therapists~$60-65

These rates can vary significantly therapist to therapist but are good benchmarks for comparison.

How about CPT Codes? How do they affect the rate of reimbursement? This is a difficult and complex calculation, depending on the level of education, location, and license. The AMA has created a code search feature on their website that shows payment based off CPT Code and location.

This information is somewhat incomplete and is based off medicare payments and does not specify a number of other important factors. However, this tool is still very useful to compare the relative value CPT Codes against one another.

Private insurance will be correlated with some deviation from these numbers.

Downcoding Claims

Downcoding (including less services on the claim than actually provided) will usually mean you get paid less, while upcoding (including more services on the claim than actually provided) can get you in trouble with your managed care panels.

It’s also important to note that it might be tempting to maximize your CPT codes to earn higher reimbursements.

This is highly recommended against and can get you flagged, audited and removed from insurance panels. Even if this is your biller’s error, the therapist is the one who ultimately bears the responsibility and will be the one penalized.
Here’s a video guide we did of this article!

Distilled Guide to Mental Health CPT Codes

If you are just starting out or just beginning to deal with managed care, keep it simple.

CPT Codes appear far more complex from the outside looking in. Make a quick cheatsheet.

Don’t worry about memorizing all the CPT Codes (there’s alot!) or even all of the mental health ones. You will likely just use just a few individual codes.

Memorize the relevant codes and use google or other references to find the correct CPT codes for more unique scenarios.

Call to verify eligibility and benefits and make sure those codes will be approved with that client’s coverage.

And if all of that sounds like too much trouble, offload the work to us.  You won’t have to know one CPT code from another to get your billing paid in full.

A Guide to Medicare Mental Health Billing Codes

Navigating the requirements of Medicare can be a challenge. But here’s some good news — CPT codes are the same for all payers, whether they are a private insurer or a government program, like Medicare. Once you know the appropriate codes to use for each of the services you provide to clients, that piece of the puzzle is solved. 

The rules around timed and untimed codes, however, are more complex. Medicare has strict specifications for calculating how to bill for time increments, and you’ll want to be sure you follow their guidelines. Here’s what you need to know about CPT billing codes for mental health and Medicare’s 8-Minute Rule.

Medicare CPT Billing Codes for Mental Health

Here’s a list of the most common CPT codes for mental health services, which you’ll use with every payer, both private and public.

  • 90832 — Individual psychotherapy for 30 minutes
  • 90833 — Individual psychotherapy for 30 performed with an E/M service
  • 90834 — Individual psychotherapy for 45 minutes
  • 90836 — Individual psychotherapy for 45 performed with an E/M service 
  • 90837 — Individual psychotherapy for 60 minutes
  • 90838 — Individual psychotherapy for 60 performed with an E/M service 
  • 90846 — Family psychotherapy for 50 minutes without the patient present
  • 90847 — Family psychotherapy for 50 minutes with the patient present
  • 90853 — Group psychotherapy
  • 96127 — Brief behavioral or emotional assessment
  • 96130 — Evaluation services including  reporting, treatment planning, clinical decision-making, interpreting test results, and providing feedback to patient, caregivers, or family members
  • 96131 — Testing evaluation services, psychological and neuropsychological
  • 96136 — Test administration and scoring, first 30 minutes
  • 96137 — Test administration and scoring, additional 30 minutes
  • 99354 — Prolonged services, first 60 minutes
  • 99355 — Prolonged services, first 60 minutes with an E/M service
  • H0032 — Mental health service plan

Many of the codes have rules around how much time you must spend with a client in order to claim the code. This is where the 8-Minute Rule comes into play. While this rule comes from Medicare, most private payers have followed suit. So it’s good to have a working knowledge of this rule regardless of whether you accept Medicare.

Medicare’s 8-Minute Rule for Timed Codes

There are two kinds of CPT codes: service-based codes and time-based codes. Service-based codes can only be billed once, regardless of the amount of time spent to perform the service. Time-based codes require a therapist to bill based on the time spent with the client while delivering the service. Though it sounds simple enough, it can be challenging when a therapist bills both service-based and time-based code for a client. 

The Medicare 8-Minute Rule outlines the process you should use to determine how many “units” you should bill for services using time-based CPT codes. In short, you must spend a minimum of 8 minutes with a client to bill for a unit, but there are guidelines for additional time spent. 

CMS, the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, provides this guidance:  “When only one service is provided in a day, providers should not bill for services performed for less than 8 minutes. For any single timed CPT code in the same day measured in 15 minute units, providers bill a single 15-minute unit for treatment greater than or equal to 8 minutes through and including 22 minutes. If the duration of a single modality or procedure in a day is greater than or equal to 23 minutes through and including 37 minutes, then 2 units should be billed.”

Though it seems fairly straight-forward, there are nuances that can make applying the 8-minute rule difficult. Here are some examples to help you understand how to comply with this guideline.

Billing for Single Treatments

When one service is provided in a day, billing is fairly straight-forward — time-based CPT codes are measured in 15-minute units. Providers shouldn’t bill for any service performed for less than 8 minutes. So, if you use 7 minutes for treatment, you wouldn’t be able to bill. For a therapeutic service lasting 8 minutes, you can bill for one 15-minute unit of time. At 22 minutes, the time is still counted as one unit of time, but 23 minutes counts as two (since it is 8 minutes past the 15-minute mark). Billing is still done in 15-minute increments, and the 8-minute rule is used to determine when the 15-minute time increment shifts for billing purposes.

Billing for Multiple Treatments

The chart and the example above works for single treatments in a day, but what about when you provide multiple treatments within a single day? Let’s look at a couple of different scenarios.

1. Multiple Short Treatments

When you provide more than one timed treatment and each is less than 8 minutes, you would bill one unit of time. Per the guidelines, whenever multiple timed treatments are offered within one day, with each taking less than 8 minutes, you should total up the time spent on all treatments, then bill one unit of time for the CPT code that you spent the most time on. So, if two treatments are provided that are under 8 minutes each, where one is 7 minutes and one is 5, the total exceeds 8 — so one unit of time can be billed, and the time will be billed to the treatment that was 7 minutes of time.

2. Multiple Treatments of at Least 8 Minutes

In this situation, you’re providing more than one service in a day and each of the services are over 8 minutes of time. Regardless of the treatment time, the CMS guidelines say you should total up the time spent on all treatments and bill based on the total time. So, if three treatments are provided that are 8 minutes, 10 minutes, and 14 minutes, the total time is 32 minutes which equates to two units of 15-minute time increments. (Or, divide the total time of 32 minutes by 15 and round down to the nearest number of units.) In this example, the CPT code corresponding to the 14-minute treatment will be billed 2 units of time.

While mental health CPT codes are straightforward, Medicare’s rules around timed codes are a bit challenging and require calculations. But the chart above makes it easy to quickly determine what to bill. Keep it as a handy reference!

Why is it important to pay attention to your mental health?

Why is it important to pay attention to your mental health?

Many have heard the catchphrase "all diseases are from the nerves." However, as a simple and natural step in case of bodily ailment to seek medical help, just as often the state of stress, anxiety, depression of mood are left without proper attention.

It is known that when people receive appropriate mental health care, they do not often seek medical help in general. There is evidence that people with unresolved mental health problems visit general practitioners twice as often as those who receive specialized, psychiatric and psychological care.
Excessive anxiety and stress can contribute to the development of certain heart diseases, weaken the immune system. Psychological problems also increase the likelihood of incorrect behavioral choices, which manifests itself in addiction to smoking and drugs, alcohol abuse. There is a close relationship between the psyche and the physical state of a person. Feelings of anxiety, constant stress and worries can lead to poor health. People who care about mental health tend to achieve great success, both professionally and personally. Mental health is important in terms of communication, especially in the family. It allows you to maintain a healthy atmosphere in the circle of close people, properly educate children, giving them the necessary care and a psychological model to follow. Mentally healthy people are more resistant to the influence of negative social factors, less prone to the formation of "bad habits". Thus, when a person is free from depression, anxiety, excessive tension and worry, he is able to live fully, fully realized and enjoy.

The state of mental health can only be fully assessed by a specialist. However, for the current assessment of one's own state or the state of the psyche of relatives and friends and making a decision on seeking help, it is enough to pay attention to a number of simple criteria.

1. Sleep state. Difficulties in falling asleep, restless sleep, unusually early awakenings, and, conversely, increased drowsiness, lack of a feeling of rest upon awakening - all these are sleep disorders that may indicate a dysfunction of the nervous system, and, in themselves, lead to its overstrain, but, means an increased risk of psychiatric disorders.
2. Health level. Mental performance is characterized by the activity of mental processes: attention, memory, thinking. A decrease in mental performance, manifested in the form of insufficient memory functioning, problems with concentration, and difficulty making decisions, can be a sign of many mental disorders and diseases.
3. Emotional state. The emotional sphere is extremely sensitive to various manifestations of trouble. The predominance of negative emotional reactions (bad mood, tearfulness, irritability, anger), their unusual and high intensity, especially in situations of inconsistency with the situation in which they manifest themselves, difficulties in managing their own emotional state - all these are reasons to pay attention to the state of mental health.
