Does your primary care clinic struggle with billing for integrated behavioral health services? Integrated behavioral health is part of many programs and models for robust primary care, including Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+), the state Patient-Centered Primary Care Home (PCPCH) program, national medical home models and more. Resources to support implementation of these integrated models are becoming more abundant, but less common is information on how to financially sustain them.
To address this need, behavioral health leaders, including providers and billing experts, have worked to produce a Coding Guidelines tool to share optimal billing practices for Medicaid and Medicare. Join these experts to review the tool and discuss how practices in Oregon have developed processes to bill for these services.
Attendees of the webinar will:
• Understand the benefits and challenges of billing for integrated behavioral health services
• Review comprehensive, vetted Coding Guidelines for billing Medicare and Medicaid for integrated behavioral health services in Oregon
• Discuss barriers to billing for these services, including stories of how clinics have successfully addressed challenges within their organizations
• Provide feedback on the tool, which will inform future versions and additional webinars
