Notes:

A separate claim should be submitted for each patient.

Where two co-therapists are involved in a group of eight or more patients, the group should be divided for claims purposes, with each co-therapist claiming the appropriate rate per patient for the reduced group size. Each claim should indicate "co-therapy" and also identify the other co-therapist.

Where a group psychotherapy session extends beyond two hours or involves more than 20 patients, a written explanation of need is required by the Plan
