CPT Codes changes to 908… series effective January 2013

Many of you may have received an email from the New York Psychiatric Association indicating changes to psychiatry CPT Codes. As a result I want to inform the membership that there will be changes to the psychiatric codes as they involve the 908.. series of codes. The most drastic for psychiatrists is the elimination of 90862 and the switch over to E & M codes (99 codes) as well as changes to 90801 which will have a modified use, one for psychiatrists and one for psychologists and social workers. Deleted codes will include 90804 – 90809, 90810 -90815, 90816-90822, 90823-90829 and 90857. It is not clear what the substitute codes will be as of yet or if a decline in reimbursement will be associated with these changes.

By mentioning the deleted and modified codes you can all see that this will affect the entire behavioral health provider community. I am sure you are all asking so now what? There is limited resources to point us to the new coding, reason for this is that a AMA work group that was comprised of Psychiatrists, Nurses, Psychologists and Social Workers were bound to a confidentiality agreement after working on this initiative with AMA and much of the information going forth will be released with the new AMA CPT Code book on October 15, 2012.

What New York State Psychological Association will do?

Continue to monitor any new information in the next 4 weeks before the AMA CPT Code book is set for release.
Contact APA to see if they will share any updated information with our membership.
Contact major insurance companies in New York to make sure they are also on board with any changes and how this will affect provider contracts .
Order (pre-order now) AMA CPT Code 2013 book. Released on 10/15/2012.

What Psychologists should do?

If feasible order a AMA CPT Code 2013 book. Released on 10/15/2012. Check all contracts where you are an in network provider and give a call to the company to see if there will be any changes that they will make to your contract or reimbursement. Those changes would most likely happen in writing or through their web portal.

Important Additional Timeline:

October 15, 2012 – Release of AMA CPT Code 2013 (Procedure terminology) January 2014 – ICD -10 – Part of the Affordable Care Act where the procedure code moves from the 9 series to the 10.

Conference Alert – CONTEMPORARY ART: INSIDE THE FREUD MUSEUM

CONTEMPORARY ART: INSIDE THE FREUD MUSEUM

Day Conference at the Anna Freud Centre

22 September 2012, 9.30am – 5.00pm

wpnk_susanhiller609x430.jpg
After the Freud Museum (detail) © Susan Hiller 1994

The contemporary art programme at the Freud Museum began almost 25 years ago and has featured over 50 international artists. Inspired by Freud’s own museological collection of art objects and antiquities, and his theories of free association and unconscious desire, artists have responded in many different ways to this unique setting. Art and analysis work with the same ‘stuff’ and the Freud Museum is saturated with memories, myth and fantasy. But the museum is also a challenge and provocation to the artist, with the figure of Freud himself looming significantly in the background.

In the opening week of a new exhibition, Saying It, this conference includes talks by international artists, curators, art historians and psychoanalysts who have participated in this important history. Speakers will reflect on exhibiting artworks within the Freud Museum and consider the rich relationship that can exist between contemporary art and historical sites, and the possibilities it creates for new interpretations and experiences.

Speakers include:

Susan Hiller (artist After the Freud Museum 1994)
William Cobbing (artist The Gradiva Project 2007)
James Putnam (curator of exhibitions by Sophie Calle, Sarah Lucas, Ellen Gallagher, Mat Collishaw, Noble and Webster, and Andreas Hofer)
Darian Leader (psychoanalyst, writer, and curator of In the Freud Museum 2002)
Griselda Pollock (art historian and cultural critic; curator of Resonance/ Overlay/ Interweave: In the Freudian Space of Memory and Migration 2009)
Joanne Morra (art historian)
Mieke Bal , Michelle Williams Gamaker, and Renate Ferro (artists Saying It 2012)

Other speakers to be announced.

Jonathan H Slavin, Ph.D

Jonathan H. Slavin, Ph.D., ABPP

Department  of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School

Dr Slavin will present a detailed clinical account of the treatment of a young man suffering massive psychic pain and immobilization. The treatment will be presented through excerpts from recorded sessions. During the course of this treatment the frozen father-son relationship began to transform in the unexpected recognition of the father’s trauma and its effects on his son.

Discussion of this treatment will focus on the developmental disruption and suffocation personal agency in childhood relational experiences and the way these may sometimes be reopened in treatment. The workshop will also focus on undertaking psychotherapy in unusual circumstances and its implications for how we think about the potential reach of psychotherapeutic work.

Date:             Saturday August 4, 2012
Time:             9:00 a.m.  –  1:00 p.m.
Location:     Cleveland Psychoanalytic Center

RSVP by calling (216) 229-5959 or email: dmorsecpc@sbcglobal.net

 

Learning Objectives:

1. We will examine how the ability to experience oneself as an “agent” is established and how it may be disrupted in the course of relational engagements and conflicts during development.

2. We will examine how these ideas may be usefully applied in the clinical context of the psychotherapeutic encounter and the potential power for transformation in adult parent-child relationships.

IEA’s September Scientific Meeting

IEA’s  September Scientific Meeting

The Analyst’s Subjectivity:  Exploring the Erotic Countertransference

Friday, September 21st
NPAP 40 West 13th Street
7:00PM – 9:30PM

Presenters:

Steven Kuchuck, LCSW
Galit Atlas, Ph.D.

Discussant
Steven Knoblauch, Ph.D.

As psychoanalysis has expanded its scope beyond a one person psychology, our conceptions about the nature of countertransference have shifted as well. The two papers in this panel focus on the erotics within the analytic dyad and offer alternative understandings to the older notion.  These new clinical conceptions offer ways for the analyst to use erotic countertransference to facilitate therapeutic action.  The first paper focuses on the analyst’s use of erotic countertransference to promote therapeutic action with patients who have experienced paternal absence or abuse.  The second paper focuses on erotic countertransference as a way to identify nonverbal patterns in the early relationship with the mother.

Steven Kuchuck, LCSW is a faculty member, supervisor and on the Board of Directors at the National Institute for the Psychotherapies (NIP) and the Institute for Expressive Analysis (IEA), where he also serves as Dean of Training.  Steven is co-editor of the journal Psychoanalytic Perspectives, author of articles on the analyst’s subjectivity and contributor to and editor of an upcoming book from Routledge, “Behind the Couch and Outside of the Office: Clinical Implications of the Analyst’s Subjectivity”.

Galit Atlas-Koch Ph.D. is a psychoanalyst, creative arts therapist and clinical supervisor in private practice in Manhattan. She is on the faculty and a board member of IEA, faculty at NYU Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis and on the faculty of the Four Year Adult and National Training Programs at NIP. Galit serves on the editorial board of Psychoanalytic Perspectives, and her writings focus on sexuality and on the relationship between attachment and sexuality

Steven Knoblauch, Ph.D. is Faculty, Supervisor New York University Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis, Faculty, supervisor, IPSS, Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy andPsychoanalytic Psychotherapy Study Center, Faculty, Stephen A. Mitchell Center for Relational Studies, Associate Editor, Psychoanalytic Dialogues, Editorial Board, International Journal of Psychoanalytic Self Psychologyand Psychoanalytic Perspectives.
