    NEW!  Hot off the press  

    “Revising Addiction Treatment Digital Marketing in Real Time: The Newest Tech Tool in Addiction Treatment Target Marketing May Be the Last One You’ll Ever Need,”,”

    As we approach the second half of 2021, there are lessons to be learned from 2020 for behavioral healthcare facilitators. Without question, the pandemic was a once-in-a-lifetime event in our personal and professional lives. Lockdowns and social distancing created greater need for addiction treatment. At the same time, providers had to figure out how to navigate a shifting landscape to provide it. What have been the results of this extraordinary paradigm shift? Is there a better way to anticipate emerging drug abuse trends going forward?

    Do addictions counseling? Got 30 minutes? If so, participate in a study we're conducting about addiction counselors' views of using technology in addictions treatment! We hope that the data collected in this study will help us discover better ways to curate/disseminate evidence-based technologies to counselors who treat clients with alcohol/drug problems. The study is being conducted through Brown University's Center for Alcohol and Addictions Studies.

    The study involves an online survey that takes about 30 minutes, can be completed entirely online, and if you complete it, we’ll send you a $20 Amazon gift card via email. To be eligible, participants must: (1) have a Bachelor's degree or higher, (2) be currently licensed/certified to provide counseling in the United States, and (3) provide alcohol/drug counseling directly to patients for at least 10% of their typical work week.

    To see if you're eligible and complete the study, click here or paste the following link into your web browser:

    Recorded link

    Highlights (Information relevant to those responsible for billing)

    • The No Surprises Act applies to ALL commercial Insurance plans
    • The No Surprises Act (NSA) does not apply to government plans (Medicaid  & Medicare)
    • 65% of Americans have commercial plans
    • Two parts of the (NSA) Post -service and Pre-service
    • Pre-service is "transparency" regarding policy benefits and terms must be available for the consumer and provider 
    • Post-service "Balance Billing prohibited" (meaning provider cannot collect balance due from the client after service delivery)

    NSA compliance date begins January 1, 2022

    You can get other details (of which there are many!!) by watching the recording found below.

    Pass along to others you know who are responsible for billing practice compliance.
