Are Your Billing Practices Doing More Harm Than Good?

NAATP Webinar Series


Webinar Recording from September 24th, 2019

As the addiction treatment industry continues to move through enormous change and the uncertainty surrounding reimbursement rates continues to rise, it's critical to learn what factors are influencing how providers are being paid now and in the future. Industry leaders from Avea Solutions and Constellation Behavioral Health will share some of the revenue trends they see taking place in 2019 and explain billing best practices you will want to adopt to ensure authorizations, lengths of care and reimbursements are more fairly allocated to SUD treatment by payers. Join us for this webinar and learn:

  • What "down-billing" is and the associated risks and impact it is having on behavioral health providers
  • The effect it is having on authorizations, lower reimbursements, and improper, lower levels of patient care.
  • Common scenarios where down-billing is used and how to appropriately work with patients and payers to remain in compliance
