CMS and Behavioral Health Integration

Integrating behavioral health care with primary care (“behavioral health integration” or “BHI”) is now widely considered an effective strategy for improving outcomes for the millions of Americans with mental or behavioral health conditions. As of January 1, 2017, Medicare makes separate payments to physicians and non-physician practitioners for BHI services they furnish to beneficiaries over a calendar month service period. Beginning January 1, 2018, these services will be reported using new CPT codes.

Additionally, in November 2017, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) published final rules that allow Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) and Rural Health Clinics (RHCs) to bill for Behavioral Health Integration services, Chronic Care Managerment, and the Collaborative Care Model.
