When you bill for a substance use assessment on one day under H0001 and while you are obtaining collateral in the next day or two, you find the client was very dishonest about multiple items asked, and you need to call and talk with them or bring them back in to obtain an accurate assessment, how do you bill the second session?



I think this is more so a clinical question... however the short answer is you don't. Collecting collateral is apart of the assessment and if you need to change your recommendations based on the collateral information received that is also still a part of the original assessment.
