Managed_care_answers_hereWe Have Updated Our Courses to Include Information On the National Evolution of Health Care Reform, Which Will Inevitably Retain the Managed Care Approach to Paying for Health Care.


Our Managed Care CEU courses present clear explanations and practical approaches to the oftentimes confusing scenarios brought about by Managed Health Care - newly relevant with the coming of the Federal Health Care Reform initiative, in its evolving format. 

How to fit in - programmatically and clinically?  Does it apply only to those working in publicly operated Medicaid programs such as Community MHMR Centers and AOD Block Grant Programs?  Are there OPTIONS in the type of SERVICES we can provide under a Managed Care Provider Agreement?  Can we continue to work in the SAME WAY that we always have?  Get the answers, here.    

Select from Managed Care courses which address those issues not often discussed in an open forum:  The ethics of documentation in client charts when insurance is paying the bill.  Understanding how Care Managers 'think' so that you can effectively structure your requests for treatment, your treatment plans, and your progress notations in a manner which will justify approval for treatment. 

Learning how to audit your own charts, to ensure that you will pass the most rigorous of clinical chart reviews by insurance companies and HMOs-BHOs.   The issue of 'provider risk' with certain types of Provider Agreements, and an understanding of the types of non-traditional programs which can be included in Provider Agreements, as well as things to avoid.  And more. 


Two of Our Most Popular Courses Are Ethics CE Courses Which Deal With the Ethics of Documentation in Clients' Clinical Records in This New Age Of Managed Care - How to Comply and Hold on to Your Ethics at the Same Time - And Understanding What Is Being Asked of Us. That's Ethics 4D and 3D.

What's the Applicability of These Managed Care Continuing Education Courses to Clinicians in Private Practice?

Virtually all private or commercial insurance carriers now utilize some form of CARE MANAGEMENT in order to ensure that the care delivered meets their own MEDICAL NECESSITY criteria. So even if you don't plan on providing Medicaid services under an HMO or the State, and regardless of how 'ObamaCare' is modified at the Federal level, these courses are still very relevant for you, if you are a private practitioner joining an 'Insurance Panel'.



We address such relevant topics as the key to EFFECTIVE DOCUMENTATION of the treatment you provide, protecting you from negative records audits and retrospective denial of claims .... and the major changes which Managed Care has brought to the addiction treatment field and the Employee Assistance field.

This course clearly explains the clinical criteria used by insurance companies and HMOs to determine your client's 'eligibility' for the treatment you are requesting. Specifically, we clearly describe the 4 CORE ELEMENTS of CARE MANAGEMENT, which insurance companies use to determine "Medical Necessity of Treatment". Understanding and applying these four core elements will give you more control over whether the treatment you request is approved or denied.
