Managed care is a revolution impacting the practice of clinicians throughout America. The Clinician’s Guide to Managed Behavioral Care, called “a survival kit” and “must reading,” helps clinicians develop and market professional services attuned to the needs of managed care systems, manage the utilization process, and reshape an office practice or hospital-based program to become more “managed care friendly.” It is newly referenced and updated for clinicians to continue to advocate for their patients and clients.
The Clinician’s Guide to Managed Behavioral Care addresses how clinicians can develop and market professional services attuned to the needs of managed care systems, how to best manage the utilization review process, how to re-shape an office practice or hospital-based program to become more “managed care friendly,” and how to best advocate for patients and clients.

The Clinician’s Guide to Managed Behavioral Care addresses how clinicians can develop and market professional services attuned to the needs of managed care systems, how to best manage the utilization review process, how to re-shape an office practice or hospital-based program to become more “managed care friendly,” and how to best advocate for patients and clients. Readers will understand the history and evolution of attempts to manage mental health care costs and services as well as the emerging clinical, economic, and social trends that will continue to fuel changes in the mental health field in coming years. Importantly, this guide sensitizes readers to the perspectives about mental health care benefits and the treatment field held by the payor community--insurance carriers, HMO’s, and self-insured employers. It allows readers to consider a payor’s view of how professionals can play a crucial role in providing quality services while helping control spiraling mental health care costs--costs that have escalated much faster than other segments of health care.
