By providing CMS-covered Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) services in the treatment of Substance/Opioid Use Disorders (SUD and OUD) your community health center's clinical providers may be eligible for a broader range of provider loan repayment programs while providing desperately needed services to patients who need help with the medical and behavioral health issues related to this other public health emergency.

Integrating Primary Care and Mental/Behavioral Health services is key, and this webinar will outline the steps needed to effectively document, code, and bill for services including screening for SUD/OUD and providing care during the induction, stabilization, and maintenance phases of MAT. Individual state Medicaid issues are too numerous and will not be specifically referred to on a state-by-state basis.

• Attendees will be able to identify where the rules and regulations around documentation, coding, and CMS billing for MAT services are located and how commercial insurers may want the services reported differently than on a Medicare claim.

• Attendees will understand how to correctly report services non-face-to-face services such as virtual check-ins, telehealth, Behavioral Health Integration, and the Psychiatric Collaborative Care Model.

• Attendees will be able to identify the full range of options available for ICD-10-CM codes and how the DSM-V clinical manual used by clinical providers may use different terminology than the ICD-10-CM requires.
