Yes. We allow 12 outpatient BH visits per benefit year without prior authorization for some Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes (90791, 90832, 90834, 90846, 90847, 90849). When submitting your claim, please select the appropriate CPT code that indicates the length of the session.
These 12 visits are separate from psychiatric medication visits, psychotherapy for crisis, groups, and collateral contacts, which are exempt from prior authorization. If your patient needs more than 12 outpatient BH visits, please request prior authorization one to three weeks prior to the last covered visit.
