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:
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.

The public access section allows consumers to query the
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
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
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
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,
As we launch the 2015-16 fiscal year, I join NCPA Treasurer Carol Hassett, Secretary Fran Schweitzer, and Trustees Chuck King and Ron Smith in offering you a warmly appreciative “Welcome Back!” We know that all of you are asked to share your time, energy, and financial resources, and we are reassured that you recognize the value the Nassau County Psychological Association provides to local psychologists, as you renew your membership with us.
Although we continue to actively seek early career members who would be interested in taking leadership roles in NCPA, we understand that many of you prefer a more cyber relationship with us. We will continue to provide you with information about current issues in our professional world through our website, listserv, and emails, and we hope that you will join us in these dialogues.
As you are no doubt aware, the American Psychological Association has been dealt a mighty blow from within its ranks, as the Hoffman report revealed serious ethical breaches by APA leaders who sanctioned and shaped harsh techniques in the interrogation of CIA and Department of Defense detainees. Our psychological association works hard and pledges to continue to protect our members and the general public by maintaining a high level of integrity and transparency in all of our activities.
We know that those of you who attended Larry Weiss’ WISC-V presentation last March found it extremely helpful and informative. We are hoping to provide you with equally helpful programs and activities during the coming months.
Essential information for practitioners utilizing insurance reimbursement: all insurance forms must utilize ICD-10-CM codes beginning October 1, 2015. Sessions billed before October 31 must utilize the DSM-5/ ICD-9 codes. The alphanumeric ICD-10-CM codes can be found on line at no charge at:
Codes for Mental, Behavioral, and Neurodevelopmental Disorders range from F01-F99.
Our Executive Director, Angela Russo, updates our NCPA website often, so do check in with us regularly.
Please join or rejoin NCPA now, at this critical time in our profession. As a courtesy, upon renewal, we will provide you with the power-point presentation from our very well-received ICD-10 program.
Let your voice be heard!
My very best wishes to all of you,
Maxine M. Marcus, Ph.D., NCPA President

Where: Thomas Dixon Lovely Ballroom - Ruth S. Harley University Center
When: 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
The Internal World as Seen in Psychoanalytic Therapies with Mothers and Infants and with ADHD Children
Dr. Björn Salomonsson, a training and child psychoanalyst of the Swedish Psychoanalytic Association in Stockholm, has published in the area of juvenile ADHD for more than two decades, challenging long held views about effective treatment. His work on mentalization-based treatment of infants and research on children with ADHD and the ‘weaving thoughts’ case presentation method has greatly enriched the understanding of what psychoanalysts can offer to young clients and their parents, reinforcing the value of seeing young clients as individuals whose inner conflicts and need to be understood and contained by the adults with whom they interact.
Dr. Salomonsson’s book, Psychoanalytic Therapy with Infants and Parents: Practice, Theory and Results was published by Routledge in 2014. Psychoanalytic Dialogues with Children and Adolescents, co-written with Majlis Winberg Salomonsson, is scheduled to be published by Routledge this year. He also holds positions at the Mama Mia Child Health Centre and in the Department of Women’s and Children’s Health, Karolinska Institute.
