Assignment 2: Week 6 Practicum Journal: Reimbursement Rates

Reimbursement rates and medical coding can be almost as complicated as treating some mental illnesses. As a 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.

· Analyze reimbursement rates for mental health treatments

· Research reimbursement rates for various treatment modalities.

· Compare NP rates to other provider rates.

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:

I gave a lower rating on the service because, a notification from the support team went out but it did not come to my email address. Had I not looked earlier on the website, then I would have been penalized for not turning in my paper on time. On my profile, I have a phone# and I also have an email address. Please set up a system to text or email new messages or notifications from the writer or support team. This will ensure that the order is processed in a timely manner. With the new and upcoming technology, this seems like it should be an easy fix to have a tool built in the website to email or text notifications of changes to orders. This is no reflection to the support team. I see this as a system issue and not a support team issue.
