New Psychotherapy Codes for Clinical Social Workers

Mirean Coleman, MSW, LICSW, CT
Senior Practice Associate, NASW

Effective January 2013, clinical social workers will begin using new and revised psychotherapy codes when providing psychotherapy services to patients.

New Psychotherapy Codes for Clinical Social Workers

The national NASW office has released a comprehensive document describing the deleted, revised, and new codes for 2013 related to clinical social workers. In addition, new definitions of psychotherapy services are included and current codes which will be without changes in code numbers for 2013.

A clinical social worker can use the new practice perspective to begin filing claims on January 1, 2013. The national NASW Lunchtime Series will be hosting an online webinar titled, Psychotherapy Codes: Major Changes for 2013 on Thursday, January 17, 2013. Having the webinar on the new codes will not negatively impact claim submissions. The webinar will discuss the new codes in depth and how they may be used effectively in practice. It also provides an opportunity for clinical social workers to use and review the codes before the webinar and enables them to ask specific questions about challenges they may be encountering when using them.
