Supporting Utilization Management with Quality Clinical Documentation
This webinar will help participants understand how the behavioral health care system is moving from a Utilization Review (UR) to a Utilization Management (UM) model in our Medicaid Managed Care environment. The essentials of a UM process will be outlined and the counselor’s role in understanding and supporting UM will be emphasized. The webinar will also highlight how clinicians can infuse measurability into the Assessment, Treatment Planning, Treatment Plan Review and Discharge Planning processes. All staff may benefit from the general content and direct care clinical staff & supervisors should invite their friends in Billing and Finance.
