Introduction to Crisis Billing
While the crisis billing process can seem complex at first glance, having the resources necessary to carry out the process can make it easier. This page contains links to valuable resources needed to carry out the crisis billing process. There is an overview of crisis billing that has been prepared by Forward Health here that can help you understand the basics. There is also a description of billable services.
If there are not currently county policies in place related to crisis billing, it is recommended your financial department works together with clinical services to develop county policies related to crisis practice and billing. There is a Medicaid Update related to crisis billing that can help guide policy development.
This diagram illustrates the flow of crisis services and where to look to find more definition and clarity for policy development. (Crisis Billing Flow Chart)
