  • Be aware of fraud regulations or risk exposure to penalties
    • Authors: Julie Miller
      Abstract: Encourage your staff to come forward with concerns about potential fraud so that deficiencies can be resolved through self-disclosure rather than a costly audit One strength of the behavioral health field is the great lengths to which providers will go to ensure that patients have access to medically necessary treatment. However, providers must be cautious about how they accept new clients and bill for the services provided to those clients in order to reduce the risk of suspected Medicare or Medicaid fraud. read more

  • Cleveland Clinic CEO might not want the VA job
    • Authors: Julie Miller
      Abstract: Obama is considering the Cleveland Clinic?s CEO to fill the vacant VA role, but does he even want the job? As a result of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) scandal, there is now an opportunity to drive a broad strategy for operational improvement and transparency within the department. A new secretary would undoubtedly need experience as a CEO but also established connections to the industry’s most respected, influential players who could help drum up political support for any new initiatives. read more

  • Telepsychiatry gains momentum at academic medical centers
    • Authors: Julie Miller
      Abstract: With emerging technologies, telepsychiatry can extend the reach of providers to help them serve clients in rural areas, in schools that do not have staff on site or in areas where integrated care is being used. Psychiatry continues to experience a provider shortage, particularly in child and adolescent psychiatry. There are 8,300 child and adolescent psychiatrists practicing in the United States, and 400 residents graduate each year. “There is no way we can meet the societal need with the present care model,” said David Pruitt, MD, director of child and adolescent psychiatry at the University of Maryland. read more

  • Lemonhead leadership in the VA and Memorial Day
    • Authors: H. Steven Moffic
      Abstract: Veterans  deserve the best care, not less care, do they not? Memorial Day is supposed to be a somber holiday. It honors the men and women in the Armed Forces who have died while serving.  Now just think of how leaders might feel if they could have done something to prevent deaths that were unnecessary for whatever reason, including by suicide. Could they bear the truth or would they have to deny it? read more

  • Class action suit against UnitedHealthcare examines how parity is applied
    • Authors: Julie Miller
      Abstract: With few precedents for mental-health parity, legal teams are examining the criteria insurers use to authorize coverage and the burdens they place on patients. Those who go to bat with health insurers on behalf of their clients might need to take a closer look at how care standards are applied in coverage policies, according to attorney D. Brian Hufford, partner in the New York office of Zuckerman Spaeder LLP. read more

  • Acquisitions aim to drive the model of care on a larger scale
    • Authors: Julie Miller
      Abstract: Addiction Campuses of America has an eye on improving the industry?s care delivery with its two new acquisitions, but leaders caution that any company?s growth strategy must keep client service top-of-mind Tennessee-based Addiction Campuses of America (ACA) this week acquired Turning Point Recovery, a provider of addiction treatment and behavioral health services in northern Mississippi and Tennessee, and Spring2Life, a Murfreesboro, Tenn., provider of addiction, recovery and behavioral services with a spiritual focus. read more

  • Shinseki apologizes, resigns
    • Authors: Julie Miller
      Abstract: VA secretary Shinseki calls the lack of honesty and leadership ?indefensible.? While the Veteran’s Administration (VA) health system has come under fire for long wait times—some as long as 115 days—there is equal concern  about attempts to cover up the problem. Today, VA Secretary Eric Shinseki resigned after a meeting with President Obama in the Oval Office, in which he apologized for the indefensible lack of integrity among senior leadership. read more

    • Authors: Charlene Marietti
      Abstract: Nepean Mental Health Centre in Penrith, New South Wales, Australia, which opened in March 2014, was modeled on the construction of the human brain.

  • Promoting Good Health
    • Authors: Ron Manderscheid
      Abstract: Efforts to promote good health and to prevent disease always are preferred strategies over efforts to treat disease. Yet, we spend far too little time, attention, and effort on either of these strategies. Both remain very underdeveloped in behavioral health. This reality persists despite the fact that both are included in the Essential Health Benefit and the Medicaid Alternative Benefit mandated by the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Promotion of good health does represent an exceptional opportunity for behavioral health going forward. It is a first in two very important ways: it will foster an entirely new field of endeavor, and it will foster linkage with all population groups. In fact, I speculate that behavioral health will be central to health promotion in the future. How very exciting!         Efforts to promote good health and to prevent disease always are preferred strategies over efforts to treat disease. Yet, we spend far too little time, attention, and effort on either of these strategies. Both remain very underdeveloped in behavioral health. This reality persists despite the fact that both are included in the Essential Health Benefit and the Medicaid Alternative Benefit mandated by the Affordable Care Act (ACA). read more

  • What is SAMHSA’s role in today’s healthcare system'
    • Authors: Julie Miller
      Abstract: SAMHSA takes the view that a whole-person approach to mental health is necessary to achieve the best outcomes and supports evidence-based practices and programs. In doing so, SAMHSA helps to diminish the risk for tragedies related to unrecognized or inadequately treated mental illness.  The mission of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is to reduce the impact of substance abuse and mental illness on America’s communities. The Affordable Care Act and new parity protections are expanding mental and substance use disorder benefits to over 60 million Americans. This historic expansion of insurance coverage presents a unique moment in history to address the long standing barriers to treatment for people with mental illness. read more
