Resource Summary: 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 more full range of loan repayment programs while providing desperately needed services to patients who need help with the medical and behavioral health issue related to this other public health emergency.
Resource Details: 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.
