MHPOffice is addressing 2 different codeset changes in January 2013. These are the CPT codes, and the Place of Service codes.
Read on for how to take advantage of these code changes.
Place Of Service
We are adding code 18 to the list available on your offices. This code is available for use effective January 1, 2013 but no later than May 1, 2013.
Code 18 - "Place of Employment- Worksite"
A location, not described by any other POS [place of service] code, owned or operated by a public or private entity where the patient is employed, and where a health professional provides on-going or episodic occupational medical, therapeutic or rehabilitative services to the individual.

CPT 2013 Revision
There have been extensive changes to the CPT codeset. For instance, virtually all 9080X codes have changed!
To assist with this, you will need to update your Cost Of Services, such as sliding scales, to contain the new codes.
We have made this easy with our updated settings:
In the Medical Coding section of MHPOffice's Settings, you can now choose your favorite codes in the new CPT code list.
Click on the CPT 2013 (Active) link, and you will see the new CPT codes. We have chosen the relevant psychotherapy codes for you to choose from.
After choosing your favorites, you may update your Cost Of Services so that your invoices can reflect your new codes.
When editing your Fees, you will notice that the "add more prices..." link now allows you to choose the CPT revision. Choose the 2013 option, and select your new codes.
