Webinar: Substance Abuse Treatment: Fraud, Abuses, and Other Barriers to Effective Care
When: Thursday May 31st
Time: 2 pm EDT
This webinar is pre-approved for HRCI & SHRM Credits!
The ACA, Mental Health Parity Act and opioid epidemic have created a “perfect storm” in the substance abuse treatment field. Prior to these legislative changes, many plans had very low financial exposure, limiting the number of treatment days/visits available per year, or even in a lifetime. Today’s reality is that substance abuse treatment facilities are growing rapidly with more direct to consumer marketing of their “luxury, resort-like” amenities. With treatment episodes exceeding six figures, substance abuse is no longer an area of low risk exposure.
