    Insurance billing codes for dance/movement therapy.

    I am wondering if any of us in private practice have had success with a particular set of billing codes for insurance.  In my recent research, I am finding that dance therapy is listed under the CPT code of G0176 Activity Therapies, including music, dance, art, and play, not for recreation.  Any thoughts feedback/experiences would be very much appreciated!!  Thanks for your time!

    Sandra:

    I have been using CPT psychotherapy codes that are based on the length of the session. For example, a 45-minute session is billed as 90834. The rationale for this is based on the fact that my work with individuals is psychotherapy, not activities therapy (which I have done professionally in the past), and is integrated with other psychotherapy techniques such as cognitive and psychodynamic therapy.

    I am looking for a placement in the Sacramento/East Bay area or Nevada County/Yuba County area for a dance/movement therapist to gain hours for my certification. I am licensed as a MFT and I am willing to volunteer my time in order to get the clinical field experience with a BC-DMT.  I am also needing clinical hours for my Psy D in clinical Somatic Psychology and would like a setting that treats Children if possible or  working with Seniors with physical or cognitive disabilities.  Please email me at chartocchi@gmail.com (or call 530 432-2984) if you have any information regarding any Psychiatric training placements for a Somatic Psychologist or a Dance/movement Therapist.

    Hi Charline:  I am not sure if you are suggesting you would use volunteer hours towards your BC-DMT but, if so, you may want to check with the DMTCB about this.  I believe only paid clinical hours count toward certification.

    I have recently begun providing early intervention services for children under 3 years old and their caregivers.  The focus of my position is socio-emotional development.  If anyone has recommendations of movement based resources to help assist the work I do with the families, I would really appreciate it.  Thank you for your time. Blessings, Lisa Troisi

    I was recently approached by someone looking for a supported dance class or dance therapy group for a 5 year old girl with musculoskeletal defects of her legs.  This little girl really wants to dance.  Does anyone have any resources or know of any groups that I can direct her to in the Philadelphia area? Thanks so much.

    I currently work with children who are challenged by Autism Disorder. Some of them are presenting with aggressive behaviors like pulling hair, biting etc. I have difficulties building a therapeutic, trustful relationship with those clients since I am sincerely scared to get bit. Does anybody have experience with clients, who bite or feel threatening in other ways?

    I remember a while back hearing about someone who knew of a source for taps that one could attach to shoes. I am looking for something that would be easy to attach to shoes for a DMT group I lead for older adults who are mostly sitting.  Anyone remember any info about a source?  Thanks!
