Custom Consulting

“Consulting Services Customized to Achieve Your Unique Program Goals”

Mental health services can be a challenge for even the best acute care hospital staffs. Changing regulations established by The Joint Commission, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Service, and state-specific local coverage determinations alone can threaten your ability to succeed.

Add to that, unique billing and reimbursement models, specialized handling of psychiatric patients and their attending families, and diverse community needs, and you have a veritable minefield of critical decisions ahead.
