Webinar: National & State Behavioral Health Systems: Changes On The Horizon

Location: Online Via

Description: Over the past two years, legislative changes have had a significant impact on the behavioral health industry landscape, particularly in how services are delivered to consumers. From the 21st Century Cures Act to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Medicaid and CHIP Managed Care Final Rule, the evolution toward value-based care, improving member outcomes, and tackling rising health care costs continues. Additional changes continue for Medicaid programs at the state level, including new work requirements, lifetime caps, and expanded focus and reimbursement for collaborative care models. In this webinar, join Mark Covall and Sean Schreiber, MEd, as they discuss what national and state policy changes on the horizon will have the biggest impact on behavioral health payers and providers across all levels of care – from inpatient to ambulatory settings and all services in between, to addiction treatment, behavioral health, and integrated care.
