Effective January 1, 2013, the Psychiatry section of the CPT manual published by the American Medical Association (AMA) was revised. A number of frequently used behavioral health codes were deleted. New codes were added and must be used for billing and documentation for all carriers. Claims received for dates of service on or after January 1, 2013 with any of these deleted codes will be rejected. A grace period for the use of deleted codes is not applicable.
