CIHS: Billing for Integration: New State Worksheets

CIHS Billing Worksheets Make Financing Integrated Services Easier

Financing is one of the key elements in integrating primary and behavioral healthcare services. Once you determine the best clinical model for your program, it is necessary to determine how the financing supports it. And while financing is often viewed as a barrier to sustaining primary and behavioral healthcare integration activities, there are nearly always means of reimbursement.

To help you bill Medicare and Medicaid optimally for integrated services, the SAMHSA-HRSA Center for Integrated Health Solutions (CIHS) has developed customized Billing and Financial Worksheets for each state that identify existing billing opportunities for services provided in integrated healthcare settings. In states where the identified codes are not currently reimbursable, the worksheets identify areas where you can engage your state agencies on reimbursement for services provided in integrated settings.

Get to know all the reimbursement opportunities available to you to prevent denials or delayed claims payments, save time and resources, and capitalize on reimbursement opportunities. Download your state billing and financing worksheet — and check out CIHS’ June 12 billing and financing webinar.

The SAMHSA-HRSA Center for Integrated Health Solutions (CIHS) promotes the development of integrated primary and behavioral health services to better address the needs of individuals with mental health and substance use conditions, whether seen in specialty behavioral health or primary care provider settings. Run by the National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare, CIHS is funded jointly by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA).
