ANGER ON MY MIND

Why Anger Management should not be billed to your Insurance

Posted on: June 14, 2007

At the first contact clients almost always as if I take insurance for anger management services. While I am able to bill insurance because of my clinical license and my enrollment on insurance panels, anger management is not an insurance billable service. Here are two main reasons:

  • The American Psychiatric Association has not classified anger as a mental health condition therefore there is no diagnostic code under which to bill the insurance company
  • Anger management psycho-educational intervention. Essentially it is the same as attending a class.

In some situations however anger is associated with a mental health problem like Bipolar or conduct disorder. In those cases a licensed profession can bill an insurance company for services provided in treating the clients diagnosis which includes treating the presentation of inappropriate anger.

Despite the fact that anger is not a clinical problem it is very destructive and if ignored can destroy the life of the angry and those who are the targets of anger. If you have problems with anger get help now.
