Marriage Therapy Codes
Answered

What codes are used for couples using their insurance to pay for marriage therapy?  For example, are counselors using "family therapy w/ patient present" codes or some other codes and does insurance reimburse for this?

    We use 90847 or 90846 (if the patient is not present). Whether it is covered is up to the insurance carrier. We have found that most of the time these codes are covered, but there are a few insurers that wont pay for family therapy.
