CPT code for Hypnotherapy


Hypnosis is used as a modality for psychotherapy. The therapist induces an altered state of consciousness, or focused attention, in the patient. While patients are in this relaxed state of heightened awareness and suggestibility, they can experience changes in the way they feel, think, and behave in response to suggestions directed to them by the hypnotherapist. This modality for psychiatric services helps the therapist to achieve an alteration in the patient's thought and behavior patterns.


Medicare will consider Hypnotherapy if reasonable and necessary for the treatment of a medical or psychological condition.

Use CPT 90880 to report Hypnotherapy. ICD codes 290 - 319 (Mental Disorders)
