Florida Medicaid Transition to Procedural Terminology (CPT) Codes for Behavior Analysis


Florida Medicaid Transition to Procedural Terminology (CPT) Codes for Behavior Analysis

On November 10, 2021, AHCA communicated is converting the Behavior Analysis fee schedule from its current Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) Level III code structure to the American Medical Association (AMA) Behavior Analysis Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) code structure.

The Agency plans to transition the Behavior Analysis fee schedule from its current Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) Level 3 code structure to the American Medical Association (AMA) Behavior Analysis CPT code structure. In 2019, the AMA adopted CPT codes for behavior analysis services. Behavior analysis CPT codes will align Florida Medicaid behavior analysis service and billing codes with national standards and improve transparency into the types of interventions delivered to Florida Medicaid recipients to promote service quality.
The Agency plans to have the CPT-based behavior analysis fee schedule effective July 1, 2022.
Additional details will be forthcoming.

Later on this year, the transition date was also extended to August 1st, 2022.

The new CPT codes are listed below

CPT Code HCPCS Code Description
97151 H0031 Behavior Analysis Assessment (24 units maximum allowable)
97151-TS H0032 Behavior Analysis Re-assessment (18 units maximum allowable)
97152 H0031 Behavior Analysis Assessment (additional information provided after 9751, not commonly used unless needed for changes to the Prior Authorization, 8 units maximum allowable)
97153 H2014 Behavior Analysis Treatment by protocol by Technician (RBT, if provided by BCBA or BCaBA will be paid at the same rate as the RBT)
97154 H2014-GK Group Behavior Analysis Therapy Services by protocol
97155 H2019 Behavior Analysis Treatment with protocol modification by Lead Analyst (BCBA)
97155-HN H2012 Behavior Analysis Treatment with Protocol modification by Assistant Analyst (BCaBA)
97156 H2019 Behavior Analysis Family Training by Lead Analyst (BCBA)
97156-HN H2012 Behavior Analysis Family Training by Assistant Analyst (BCaBA)
97158 H2014-GK Group Behavior Analysis Therapy Services with protocol modification

More details are available here:

Changes for each individual Credential?

RBTs: H2014 ➩ 97153

There is no big change for the Registered Behavior Technician (RBT), they simply need to select a different code, in this case, they change from their previous H2014 to 97153,

BCaBAs: H2012 ➩ 97155-HN, 97156-HN, 97153*

Please note that 97153 will be paid at the same rate as an RBT. For the current rate equivalent to H2012, please use the 97155-HN or 97156-HN.

BCBAs, LMHC: H2019 ➩ 97155, 97156, 97153*

Please note that 97153 will be paid at the same rate as an RBT. For the current rate equivalent to H2019, please use 97155 or 97156.

Example of Protocol Modifications:

97155 or 97155-HN

  • Adjustments to specific components of a protocol (e.g., treatment targets, treatment goals, observation and measurement, reinforcers, reinforcer delivery, prompts, instructions, materials, discriminative stimuli, contextual variables)
  • Observations to determine if the protocol components are functioning effectively for the patient or require adjustments
  • The active direction of a technician while the technician delivers a service to a patient to ensure that the procedures are being implemented correctly, to correct errors in implementation, or to train the technician to implement a modified protocol
  • Analyst implementation of the protocol with the patient to determine if changes are needed to improve patient progress or to test a modified protocol

97156 or 97156-HN

  • The Analyst reviews the treatment protocol with the parents, which involves the use of prompting and reinforcement to promote the individual’s use of picture cards and gestures to indicate his desire to stop an activity and to request help.
  • The Analyst demonstrates those procedures with the individual while the parents observe, then has each parent in turn implement the procedures with the individual while the Analyst observes, provides feedback, and records data on the individual’s performance.
  • The Analyst gives the parents a copy of the treatment protocol and data sheets with instructions for implementing the protocol during typical family routines.

Changes for Billing

The most important change is that for a typical visit you only had to bill using 1 billing code, now you might need to use more than one. This is extremely significant since in the Claim form (CMS-1500) you will need to include not only 1 billing code but all the billing codes applicable for the session with their applicable number of units. This only applies to BCaBAs or BCBAs.

Office Puzzle changes

We don't have to do much since Office Puzzle natively supports all types of billing codes and the split of units by individual billing codes. Below you will find an example of a BCaBA working for 4 hours (16 billable units), out of which 2 hours were for direct implementation with protocol modification and the other 2 hours for family/caregiver training.

Readiness Checklist for Administrative Staff

The following checklist is intended to make sure everything is configured correctly. Depending on the Agency and the complexity level some elements might be optional.

Word of advice, DO NOT REMOVE previous Billing Codes before all visits with the previous Billing Codes have been created, doing so will prevent Providers from actually creating new visits with the OLD billing Codes.

1. Allowed Billing Codes for the Agency

Step #1: Go to the Agency Dashboard
Step #2: Click on Configuration
Step #3: Click on Billing Codes

By now all the new billing codes should be available for all Agencies providing ABA Services. If you are missing any of the billing codes and need help adding them, please contact support.

2. Allowed Billing Codes per Credential Type

Step #1: Go to the Agency Dashboard
Step #2: Click on Configuration
Step #3: Click on Credentials
Step #4: Click on each individual credential and look for the "Allowed Billing Codes" selector.

This is an optional requirement but it helps greatly to prevent providers choosing a Billing Code they are not allowed to use.
An empty field here will allow all Credentials Types to select all Allowed Billing Codes for the Agency.

3. Allowed Billing Codes per Insurance/Payer

Step #1: Go to the Agency Dashboard
Step #2: Click on Configuration
Step #3: Click on Insurance
Step #4: If you have more than one insurance click on Florida Medicaid to check for available rates.

This is an optional requirement for agencies not using Prior Authorizations, without a rate for a specific Billing Code, you will not be able to create Prior Authorizations for the Billing Code.

4. Allowed Billing Codes per Event Type

Step #1: Go to the Agency Dashboard
Step #2: Click on Configuration
Step #3: Click on Events
Step #4: Click on the Event Type you would like to configure.

This is an optional requirement, but an important one to prevent Billing Codes for being selected in every type of Event.

Charts

Charts

A chart is a highly effective way of presenting information since it tends to highlight the data behavior and trends better than tables. Any study or investigation that requires recollecting and managing data should include charts for a better analysis, interpretation, and visualization of the results. Among these, ABA Therapies need them to analyze client behavior over time.

Why use charts?

  • Provides immediate access to the behavioral log.
  • Having real-time info about the variations of data incentives exploration.
  • Offers assistance when judging.
  • Promotes independent judgment and interpretation.
  • Effective source of feedback.

Charts in Office Puzzle
Office Puzzle offers the possibility to create charts with a powerful and fully customizable system while also providing a friendly and usable interface.

One of its main features is having multiple types of datasets available:

Dataset Description
Baseline Expected behavior of data, used for comparative purposes
Average Average of values through a day, week, month, or year
Total The total value of data during a day, week, month, or year
Rate Occurrence of an event during a unit of time
Count The total value of data collected
Session count Count of sessions during a day, week, month, or year

There are other multiple features available such as:

  • Show multiple datasets at the set time on the same chart
  • Customize X and Y axis (title, color, max value, min value, etc)
  • Customize each dataset (title, color, associated axis, type, etc)
  • Add tags, solid, dashed, and dotted lines
  • Show data on daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly intervals

As a team, we are confident that using the charts from our software will definitely make your work easier. If you need more information, just email us at hello@officepuzzle.com.

On-site Data Collection

On-site Data Collection

If you are like me you probably don't like working twice. To avoid collecting data on a datasheet (a.k.a. piece of paper) and then transferring the data into an Electronic System.

Office Puzzle provides a native solution to avoid doing this manual process and of course, avoid any mistakes while doing this. This is called On-Site Data Collection and is our attempt to allow providers to collect data while in the field with their clients in real-time, This data is directly transferred both to the Datasheets and the Charts automatically.

This is as simple as just clicking a button from the mobile, tablet, or computer.

Datasheets for Data Collection

Datasheets for Data Collection

From our datasheets, you will be able to add the data collected for your client, as you would do it from a sheet of paper for the entire month of work. 

Using a digital platform for this will prevent minor mistakes such as:

  • All calculations are made automatically by the system, so no more calculations are needed on your side.
  • Adding data for days not worked, the system will automatically make them appear in grey, while the rest will be blank and ready to add the data collected on it.
  • Add the initials of the person who collected data for that day,
  • Add comments if needed.
  • Add digital signatures
  • Lock datasheet to prevent modification after 
  • Printing them into PDF for storage or distribution.

Data Collection


 ¿What is Data Collection, why is it important?

Data collection is the process of recording information, using different methods, according to the type of service provided. By using data collection and analysis methods, it is easier for professionals to measure and report accurate and real data in order to make the right decisions in determining what will be the most effective way to modify or improve the quality of the services they provide.

There are several types of data collection. For example, in the case of some therapies such as ABA, an analyst will determine what kind of data to collect depending on the type of information he or she needs about the behavior or response being evaluated. 

Office Puzzle provides you with a detailed data collection system, fast and easy to handle. With several ways to add, organize, visualize and analyze with care and precision your client's data. Making the difficult and tedious work of adding handwritten information disappear.

Our system has implemented more than 15 data collection methods, on which we have worked to perfect it for your benefit, that you can employ regardless of the therapy you are using for your client. 

Type Description Methods
Event Recording The number of occurrences by a unit of time. Ex: hour, day, week, interval. Frequency, Count, Rate
Time Sampling Collect data at periodic points in time or time periods rather than on a consistent basis. Whole Interval, Partial Interval, Momentary Time Sampling
Timing Length of time the behavior, or event occurred. Duration, Response Latency, Interresponse Time
Trial Several ways to easily record whether a response has been Correct, Incorrect, or there was no response to the test applied. Discrete Trial Teaching, Incident Teaching, Percentage of Opportunities
Task analysis Task analysis is used to break complex tasks into a sequence of smaller steps or actions. Forward Chaining, Backward Chaining, Total Task Chaining, Backward Chaining with Leaps Ahead

Data collected in the system is linked directly to the graph to be able to follow the progress of your client.

We mostly offer two ways of collecting data, click on each one of the methods below to learn more about it.

  1. Datasheets
  2. On-site

Support is a way for customers to get help either through instant messaging platforms, email, or toll-free telephone services. Integrated support applications allow agents or administrators to respond to text chats from the many customers using the website.
