SAMHSA-HRSA Center for Integrated Health Solutions (CIHS): 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, CIHS has developed customized billing and financial worksheets for each state that identify existing billing opportunities for services provided in integrated healthcare settings.
