This post has been updated to reflect changes in CPT and HCPCS codes for 2018. The original post from December 2016 was titled
“New G codes 2017 | Behavioral health management (BHI)”
This updated quick reference sheet includes the description for each code, time requirements, reimbursement rates and more.
We have included the original post below for your reference.
The CMS Final Rule released in November 2017 included new HCPCS codes for behavioral health management services, or behavioral health integration (BHI), a comprehensive assessment of cognitive function for patients with dementia and an add-on code for initiating chronic care management. CMS also eased the burden of reporting CCM.
These HCPCS codes were changed to CPT codes in 2018. When services are defined by CPT codes we can all easily find the rules for them in our CPT books and other AMA resources. I’ve updated the original chart with CPT codes.
