Comprehensive Assessment Update Billing

Dawn 2 years ago in Codes/Rates/Diagnosis Modules updated by Heather L. Heim 2 years ago 1

Hi, we are running into issues when billing the SUD Comprehensive Assessment Update.  The update is normally an hour long appointment as opposed to the two hour long Comprehensive Assessment.  We are wondering what code people are using when billing for the update or are updates not being billed for at all.  Thank you so much in advance for any advice that you have!

The only code I use for comps is H0001 with the correct rev code (0944 or 0945).  There is no distinguishing between a normal comp and an update.  This code is also not time-based, so it doesn't matter if you spend 2 hours doing a comp or 40 minutes doing a comp or an update.
