Insurance Coding & Diagnosis Help

Posted under Member Inquiries by Kelly Snider on June 5, 2006 @ 2:06pm

I'm wondering if anyone knows of some printed material or training of
some sort on how to translate psychodynamic psychotherapy into terms that insurance companies will accept when they're looking for
measurable, behavioral goals.

I have a long-term patient with severe PTSD, not to mention the other things she struggles with . How can I possibly help someone from this behavioral mindset understand what we've been doing in therapy so that they will continue her twice a week treatment? Needless to say this is a new insurance company.

Any resources that you could direct me to would be appreciated.

I found a book called "The Complete Psychotherapy Planner" by Jongasma and Peterson (1995, Wiley and Sons, ISBN # 0-471-11738-2). It has been most helpful in playing the insurance company game.

Mr. Feldman,

Thank you so much for the information. It is really nice to see members getting involved, sharing and communicating with one another.
Thank you.

This book is exactly the tool I needed! if anyone is looking for it, please be aware that the title now is "Complete Adult Psychotherapy Planner" and there's a newer edition.
