Can you code for each participant of a session of marriage counseling

No, as this would be considered double-dipping or duplicatebilling. There should be only one identified “client.” If thatperson’s treatment for an existing mental health diagnosis isrequiring their partner or spouse to participate in treatment, thenonly that one client should be identified and billed. Remember that”marriage counseling” itself is not a billable service forinsurance companies. Only services that are deemed “medicallynecessary” are covered by medical insurance.
