As you know, new codes for psychological and neuropsychological testing took effect on January 1. The Mass Collaborative is developing a new prior authorization form that will include the new codes and remove codes that are no longer valid.
Until that form is available, please:
Our Psychological and neuropsychological assessment supplemental form will no longer include the prior authorization form. You can download the prior authorization form from the Mass Collaborative. We will provide a link to it from our website.
Please refer to your professional association’s website and other communications for more information about appropriate coding.
