New Revenue Opportunities for Primary Care in 2017

This webinar will review coding and payment for these services. Some are reported with CPT codes and some HCPCS codes. All have specific requirements that must be met and documented.

2017 brings primary care new revenue opportunities when providing care coordination services, including non-face-to-face prolonged services. There are two new HCPCS codes, in 2017 that describe services primary care practices are doing but not getting paid for. 2017 brings payment for assessing cognitive function and initiation of chronic care management. CMS has also eased the requirements for performing and billing chronic care management and added payment for complex chronic care management, using CPT codes. There are four new HCPCS codes for primary care practitioners who direct coordination of care activities for patients with behavioral health needs. The requirements for three of these are extensive and primary care groups may not have the resources to perform them. But, the requirements for one of the behavioral health coordination codes is within reach.


At the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the requirements of the new HCPCS codes for the psychiatric Collaborative Care Model for Behavioral Health Integration and assess if their practice is ready to report these services
  • Implement billing for non-face-to-face prolonged services when the physician or non-physician practitioner performs that service
  • Identify the requirements for HCPCS codes G0505 and G0506
