The third edition of the CPT Handbook for Psychiatrists, Third Edition, by Chester Schmidt Jr., M.D., Rebecca Yowell, and Ellen Jaffe is hot off the press and is available for purchase at APA’s 2004 annual meeting in the APPI Bookstore on the exhibit floor of the Javits Center or can be ordered from APPI (see below).

Correct coding and documentation are vital to getting paid, and APA members have found that the CPT Handbook for Psychiatrists has been an invaluable resource since it was first published in 1993.

With its eight chapters and 12 appendixes, the new edition offers an expanded amount of practical information. For example, documentation templates for specific codes are included, as well as new vignettes to describe when to use which psychiatric code. Based on the collective wisdom of APA’s Committee on RBRVS, Codes, and Reimbursements, the new edition also answers many of the questions the committee has received from clinicians in recent years.

CPT Handbook for Psychiatrists, Third Edition, can be ordered by phone from American Psychiatric Publishing Inc. at (800) 368-5777 or online at www.appi.org. ▪
