Applied Behavior Analysis CPT Coding Crosswalk Guide
The Applied Behavior Analysis CPT Coding Crosswalk Guide indicates the most common HCPCS and CPT codes that have been or are being utilized by payers to report ABA services. It is organized by the essential elements of ABA services, as indicated by the BACB. Those services include assessment and reassessment, treatment plan development and revision, direct treatment of individual clients, supervision or direction of technicians by a professional behavior analyst or other Qualified Healthcare Professional (QHCP), family or caregiver training, and group treatment. The crosswalk chart also indicates which personnel must attend each service to report the new CPT codes, as well as applicable time increments.
We hope the crosswalk information will foster a greater understanding of how the Category III codes were intended to be reported and encourage uniform reporting of ABA services across providers, payers, and states. If you have comments or questions or need additional information, please contact Jenna Minton.
