  • The Supreme Court has decided in favor of the American people
    • Authors: Ron Manderscheid
      Abstract: This Court decision is a great victory for social justice. It is essential that the poor and near poor have access to health coverage. Such coverage, with sliding subsidies, has been made available through ACA. Hallelujah, for the second time! As a not entirely unexpected outcome, the Supreme Court this week ruled in King v. Burwell.  This 6-to-3 decision upholds the authority of the US Department of Health and Human Services to pay insurance premium subsidies under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) to persons who seek insurance through the federal health insurance marketplace. read more

  • How to monitor prescription drugs
    • Authors: Julie Miller
      Abstract: Mandated or not, use of monitoring programs can curtail doctor shopping, which is why pressure has mounted on Missouri to establish a program. Driven by a dramatic increase in prescription drug overdoses and misuse over the past decade, state prescription monitoring programs (PMPs) have gradually rolled out in 49 states. Twenty-four of those states mandate the use of PMPs by prescribers. The lone hold out is Missouri. But earlier this year, after years of opposition and delays, the state senate finally brought forth a compromise bill that would establish a PMP. If it passes, Missouri prescribers and pharmacists would be able to use the PMP database to more quickly identify potential prescription abuse in the state. read more

  • Don’t implement that app until you ask these questions
    • Authors: Julie Miller
      Abstract: CRI?s guide helps providers cut through the clutter to find the right app for their patients. Centerstone Research Institute (CRI) has released a downloadable guide to help providers walk through the process of integrating mobile technology into behavioral healthcare. With more than 1.3 million Android apps and 1.2 million Apple apps for health, it can be tricky to differentiate all the choices. CRI’s “appImpact” guide, created in collaboration with the D.N. Batten Foundation, serves as a roadmap for organizations integrating mobile technologies into care models. read more

  • Resilience drives the recovery journey
    • Authors: Julie Miller
      Abstract: Use these 5 steps to begin again when your career takes a turn. Just like the recovery process, you need to move forward with strength. My husband, Gene, and I recently weathered the most traumatic experience in our 40-plus years in behavioral health. By sharing, I hope to create an honest conversation about the steps beyond recovery to build resilience within each of us. Gene and I spent night and day working in the organization Gene founded 20 years ago, which had grown from a tiny program to an annual budget of $60 million. Then suddenly, it was no longer our home. With one memo, Gene was no longer CEO. read more

  • Things you never expected from ACA
    • Authors: Julie Miller
      Abstract: Behavioral providers are often left with questions as they try to navigate a new world of healthcare under the Affordable Care Act. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) mandates changes in healthcare delivery, however, some secondary, ripple effects of ACA have turned out to be even more challenging at the practical level. Today’s providers are scrambling to retool. Widespread impact on traditional medical providers has been well documented and examined, but ACA impact on the behavioral healthcare community is a bit murkier. Meanwhile, behavioral providers are often left with questions as they try to navigate a new world of healthcare. read more

  • BREAKING: Virginia Medicaid abandons DSM-5
    • Authors: Julie Miller
      Abstract: DSM-5 has been controversial. Most behavioral providers are accustomed to using it, but the industry continues to argue over whether it?s the right tool.   This week, Virginia’s Medicaid program reminded providers that they must make the switch from ICD-9 to ICD-10 diagnostic coding on October 1, 2015, to comply with federal regulations. However, at the same time, officials announced they are essentially abandoning the longstanding DSM diagnostic code sets. The decision is groundbreaking as no other state has made such a move. Making the choice read more
