Medical Coding and Auditing for Behavioral Health
HIA offers medical coding support and audits for Behavioral Health and Psychiatric facilities in the United States. Mental healthcare is highly regulated and governed by federal laws making mental health coding challenging. Furthermore, Medicaid policies often differ by state, practicing regulations, and commercial buyer billing guidelines. Accurate mental health coding that complies with these regulations is critical to report these services correctly. HIA's credentialed coders are up-to-date on all coding guidelines for behavioral health facilities. Our consulting service identifies specific areas of financial and compliance risk, provides pertinent information and educates clients on proper documentation, billing and coding practices.
