New CPT® codes for psychotherapy- effective Jan. 1, 2013

Dear NCPA / NPSI Friends,

In navigating the CPT changes, I believe you will find this website interesting and helpful: PsychologyCoding.com

CODING, BILLING AND DOCUMENTING PROFESSIONAL PSYCHOLOGICAL SERVICES

This presentation explains the changes made in the CPT codes for psychological services.  Prepared recently by Antonio Puente of UNC Wilmington, it is very comprehensive and runs more than 500 pages.

Best wishes,

Maxine Marcus, President

The public access section allows consumers to query the "Find a Psychologist" database, formerly known as "On-Line Referral Service." This newly revamped feature provides a more comprehensive profile of private practice information which we believe will better service our members and public inquiries. Visitors will also find helpful community resources, a user-friendly method of contacting us and a simplified manner in which to apply for membership.


For NCPA Members only: An ID and password are necessary to access this section. As a current member, you will be provided with a temporary ID and password via e-mail. Upon your initial log-in to the Members Only section, please use the assigned login information.

Once logged-in, all information is menu- driven, providing you with the ability to navigate the entire site. In addition, we are most excited to provide a much expanded self-entry database (replacing the currently used paper on-line profile form.) This new feature is designed to enable you to specifically represent your practice and keep your information up-to-date. As a School Psychologist, Academic, Agency/Hospital affiliated psychologist, Emeritus or Student, you have the ability to enter pertinent information to be included in the NCPA Member Directory.

Since this newly designed website is still a work in progress, your comments/suggestions are most welcome. You may click on "Contact Us" link, call 516-377-1010 or fax us at 516-377-1240.

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Welcome to the 2016-2017 membership year!

Your NCPA Board members, Carol Hassett (Treasurer), Fran Schweitzer (Secretary), Chuck King (Trustee), and Ron Smith (Trustee), as well as Shane Owens (our NYSPA Rep) join me in thanking you for continuing to support the profession right here where you live, at your local level, in Nassau County. We actively represent both Clinical and School Psychologists, and do our best to advocate for you and for your constituents.

We're particularly excited about our first program this year, on Mindfulness, co-sponsored with the Adelphi University Derner Institute. Dr. Anthony Pantaleno and Dr. Gabrielle Chiaramonte will present "Mindfulness for You, Mindfulness for Your Patients, Mindfulness Applications for School Populations" on Sunday morning, November 6, 2016. Check your emails soon for further information.

We're also planning programs on School Climate and Social-Emotional Learning. Recent NY State legislation mandates attention to these issues in the schools, and we’re pleased to help you pragmatically, to stay current with your professional skills. Last April, our program “How to Start and Build a Psychotherapy Practice” was widely applauded by early career psychologists as well as by many of us who have been around quite a long while. We hope to offer you even more.

We encourage you, our highly valued Long-Term members, to attend these professional programs and help us welcome and encourage our New Members and our Student Members by offering them your smiles and a few kind words of greeting when you meet them.

We very much want all of you, our members, our new members, and our student members to come to our programs and help us consider and plan for other programs. Please don’t be shy. If we can better meet your needs, please talk to us and we’ll try harder. Help us keep NCPA alive and well.

Please join us or renew your membership right now!

With our very best wishes to all of you,

Maxine M. Marcus, Ph.D., NCPA President
