EdRev Expo 2019 Workshop: Navigating the Maze of Health Insurance for Mental Health Related Interventions

Presenter Karen Fessel provides an overview of some of  the steps involved in getting insurance to cover intensive mental health treatments for teens, including outdoor and traditional residential therapies, along with day treatment and outpatient mental health treatments.

She also discusses state and federal laws which confer protections, what to submit for reimbursement, how to explore the network and request exceptions when the network is inadequate, and what to do when treatment is denied.
