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.
