You are uniquely situated to help this population meet the Medicare/Medicaid requirements in treatment. Learn where behavioral health fits within the continuum of care and grow your practice before it’s too late!
Position yourself as a key partner in achieving the goals set for patient management. Knowing what is required of you, the behavioral health provider, in different settings and developing your skills in working with aging clients will make you an invaluable partner in the changing field of aging.
