WHAT’S THE FUTURE & WHERE TO FIT
This 6-hour program addresses the profound changes that are taking place in the health system in the U.S., the implications for mental health care, and, in turn, the implications for mental health care providers. We begin with a discussion of the role of the insurance industry in health care and how that role has expanded over the past 50-60 years, affecting the licensure and practices of mental health professionals. From there, we move to the current changes themselves, including:
● the Affordable Health Care Act ● Accountable Care Organizations
● Current Procedural Terminology ● DSM vs. ICD
● Electronic Health Care Records ● HIPAA Changes
Also covered are insurance panels for independent practitioners, the Parity Law, “Professional Wills,” alternatives to licensed mental health practice, and licensing board action summaries.
Continues on themes from Part 1 on awareness and management of risk factors in the major areas of high-risk practice.
