CPT Code: Can a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in private practice in Florida bill insurance companies/medicare for 96127 CPT Code

Yes, social workers can bill in Florida or any other state, but you must know the state’s specific requirements, the payor’s requirements, how to deliver the service and how to bill according to the CPT code.

Short question – very long answer. Lots of variables. Take a basic telebehavioral health reimbursement course here to get a firm footing in what to ask, then approach a Telehealth Resource Center in your geographic area. Many don’t focus specifically on behavioral issues, so your taking the course could save you lots of time/billing that goes nowhere. Consider our online Telebehavioral Health Reimbursement Strategies Increasing Authorization & Payment course, offered with 3 CE hours that are recognized by most behavioral professional associations/licensing boards. If you want a discounted Certificate package, have a look at our professional Certificate Level II program page.

When will mental health counselors be added as appropriate to provide medicaid and Medicare services. If they want more providers, that would be the best well qualified resource nationally.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
