Should OTís bill for services in acute care psychosocial practice? Print E-mail

For acute care hospitalization charges, clients receiving Department of Mental Health services are generally covered under the partnership payment system. For these clients, acute care OT services are included in their daily bed rate. For these individuals there is no additional billing. In most settings, all other clients should be billed for the skilled Occupational Therapy services they receive. However, the use of the appropriate CPT billing codes and documentation is required to receive reimbursement.
