A Panel Discussion
Earn 1.25 hrs CCM, RN and SW CEs.

Tuesday, February 1, 2022
11:00am - 12:15pm ET

CMSA is committed to being actively involved in ensuring that mental health services are part of every case management integrated care delivery model. It is imperative that the illnesses of the brain be treated like any other illness of the body and that mental health is recognized as a vital component of health care delivery by patients, providers, health care advocates, payers, employers and others. Promoting mental health is a fundamental value of case management and while resources are needed to help communicate its importance, many are already available such as case management interventions, telehealth, outpatient visits, home visits and educational programming. Improved clinical and financial outcomes are a critical outcome of our work.

Join a panel of experts as they share the realities of reimbursement and accessibility of mental health care and hear success stories of case managers who have navigated the challenging landscape.
