Aetna Florida (Healthy Kids Plan): coding properly for depression Screening

Aetna Better Health of Florida (ABHFL) has adopted nationally accepted evidence-based preventive services guidelines (PSG) from the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).


Screening for depression is recommended in healthy children 12-17 year of age with normal risks.
ABHFL has added two new HCPCS Codes to report Depression Screening in order to comply with
the Florida Healthy Kids (FHK) depression screening measurement requirements.

For specific coverage information, members should refer to their plan’s Evidence of Coverage,
contact their employer’s benefits department or call us at the number on their plan member ID
