Changes in the CPT System Affecting the Practice of Neuropsychology
Tuesday June 9th, 2015
 

NCNF welcomes back to the Bay Area, Dr. Antonio Puente. Dr. Puente will provide us with important updates regarding changes in healthcare and CPT coding that will have a direct impact on the practice of neuropsychology.

This program will provide an update on three aspects of the CPT system: 1) changes in coding, especially with regard to screening evaluations; 2) changes in documentation emphasizing performance over activity; and 3) changes in ACA affecting the long term practice of neuropsychology.

Learning Objectives:

1. Understand the basics of the CPT system.

2. Gain an appreciation of codes involving neuropsychology. Emphasis will be placed on evolving changes surrounding the previous areas with a specific focus on interactive complexity and screening.

3. Gain a basic understanding of diagnosing and documenting services provided especially when addressing issues involving “medical necessity” and fraud.

4. Comprehend the overview of current healthcare paradigms that apply to psychologist and provide suggestions for evolving ones.  

After Dr. Puente's talk, please join friends and colleagues for food, drinks and networking. Hearty hors d' oeuvres will be served. The networking event will be held at the same venue as the presentation.

About Dr. Puente:

Dr. Puente was born in Cuba and received degrees from the University of Florida (BA) and the University of Georgia (MS, PhD). He is a Professor of Psychology at the University of North Carolina Wilmington and a Visiting Professor at the Universidad de Granada (Spain) and UCLA.  Since 1982, Dr. Puente has maintained a private practice limited to clinical neuropsychology. In 2002 he founded and now co-directs a bilingual mental health clinic for the poor and uninsured.

Dr. Puente has presented extensively on healthcare and CPT changes that have a direct impact on neuropsychology. He has held numerous high level leadership positions including serving as a past President of the National Academy of Neuropsychology and as the only psychologist to serve on the CPT Editorial Panel.

Neuropsychologists are increasingly discovering the challenges, necessity, feasibility, and satisfaction of competent cross-language evaluation. Currently, 44% of California’s population speaks a non-English language at home. This presentation will present protocols and tools for such work and directions for acquiring needed skills. Topics will include ethics, professional preparation, case selection, pre- and post-evaluation cultural research, interpreter use skills, cultural history-taking, testing considerations, bilingual evaluation, and cultural/linguistic adaptation of evaluation outcomes. Many neuropsychologists approach evaluation of clients who do not share their language with guilt, shame, and fear. This presentation aims to transform this into an experience of accomplishment, satisfaction, discovery, and professional renewal
