With tremendous changes in the behavioral health industry, there will continue to be opportunities to provide desperately needed treatment services to those suffering from substance use disorders, but the business models are changing rapidly. The traditional treatment models are finding it more difficult to survive as insurance payors and government payors repeatedly modify their reimbursement programs. Attracting patients has become more difficult as increased regulations have been imposed on marketing and compensation practices.
The professionals and attorneys at BHAP and Nelson Hardiman have carefully designed the curriculum of this Boot Camp to address these growing concerns in this webinar series.
Any healthcare business is subject to a long list of standards, regulations and laws for which it must comply: substance use disorder treatment programs are included. The best practice to insure compliance is to develop policy and procedures that are incorporated into the daily operation of the treatment program. This webinar provides the necessary information and best practices for SUD treatment providers.
