Reimbursement Rates Discussion 2

Reimbursement rates and medical coding can be almost as complicated as treating some mental illnesses. As a Psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioner (PMHNP), you will be faced with varying rates that may be different than other health care providers you may work with.

In this Practicum Journal Assignment, you will analyze reimbursement rates for mental health treatments you will likely use in your practice and compare those rates to other provider rates.

 

Learning Objectives

Students will:

· Analyze reimbursement rates for mental health treatments

 

Assignment

· Research reimbursement rates for various treatment modalities.

· Compare PMHNP rates to other medical provider rates.

· For this Practicum Journal:

Complete the Reimbursement Rate Template in your Learning Resources using

the five types of services you are likely to use in your practice. (PLEASE USE THE

Attached Reimbursement Rate Template)

 

N.B: (1) REMEMBER TO INCLUDE INTRODUCTION, CONCLUSION AND

REFERENCES LESS THAN 5 YEARS OLD

(2) PLEASE USE THE Attached Reimbursement Rate Template

As the PMHNP becomes proficient in diagnosing and treating, it is also important to learn how to bill for your time. The CMS sets up codes to identify the type of service you are providing. You will generally complete this task at the end of the visit as you are documenting the visit with the client. Here are examples of the codes to know: Reimbursement Rates Discussion 2
