Billing in the Outpatient Pediatric World

by Kaylee

Hello! I am a CF in an outpatient pediatric rehab facility.

Lately I have been evaluation a lot of kids who have pragmatic/social-emotional/regulation issues. My supervisor said that if I am doing therapy for these types of kiddos, I can bill it as cognitive treatment vs speech/language treatment.

However the more research I try to do on the matter, the more "gray" and confusing it becomes. I don't want to improperly bill my kids, however I am not sure what type of treatment it really is, especially since the majority of the time revolves around identifying problems and solutions, self-regulation emotions, understanding why people feel the way the feel, identifying emotions and other aspects to body language, etc.

Would this be considered cognitive treatment or speech/language treatment?
