What does the BHI Code (G0507) Cover?
G0507 covers at least 20 minutes per month of care management services for behavioral health conditions. The care management services under G0507 can be performed under general supervision by clinical staff off-site. G0507 is used to bill monthly services furnished using BHI models of care.

We ensure to develop a quality Behavioral Health Care Plan based on the patient’s need, with the provider’s approval.

We determine if your system needs to have customized templates created and then develop them to meet the BHI program requirements.
Management of the CCM Patients Care
If changes happen to the patients’ condition, we change their care plan if necessary to provide an accurate kind of care with the BHI provider’s approval.
Our Behavioral Health Care Managers start the BHI services by engaging with your patients and facilitate or coordinate treatment.
