Medicare has agreed to make separate payments to physicians and non-physicians for Behavioral Health Integration (BHI) services beginning Jan. 01, 2017.

Any condition new or pre-existing behavioral health or substance use disorders are eligible. Beneficiaries may have comorbid, chronic, or other medical conditions they are being treated for as well.

Using the new codes you bill the Place-of-Service POS where the practitioner provides face-to-face care. A separate payment can now be made to the hospital (including critical access hospitals) when a practitioner reports the POS as hospital outpatient.
