Meditation In A Bottle

by Jerome Jerome Princy (2019-11-05)


Accept the natural progression. Don't Meditation In A Bottle Review fight against it. Let the process. Believe in yourself. Every time you do healing work - regardless of the immediate outcome - you are making progress. Healing is cumulative. Keep pushing toward your goal until you get there. The ultimate reward is worth the roller coaster of the entire struggle. Continuity of care between the inpatient and outpatient settings continues to be a challenge. Current hospital payments assume that hospitals are actively involved through discharge and the transition to outpatient settings and advocating for payments for outpatient providers to assist in this process is viewed as duplicative. This undermines mental health care providers' ability to smoothly transition clients between service settings. Meeting the credentialing requirements for program services and mental health professionals has posed new challenges. Community behavioral health organizations employ professionals that may not meet private insurers' credentialing standards (for example, 3 years of post-licensure experience). Community providers have addressed this through contractual arrangements in which quality assurance and supervision requirements substitute for these credentialing standards. Services are billed under a supervisory protocol in which the supervising professional's national provider identifier is used. Additionally, some programs offer services that rely on a combination of funding sources such as county, state, and private insurers. In these situations, counties sometimes want to limit private insurance clients' access to these programs because a portion of the overall program is covered by the county. In a dramatic turnabout that may foreshadow dilemmas faced by other states, the governor of Minnesota vetoed funding for the state's mental healthcare program. The legislature would have extended the program for several months, as a compromise was negotiated to retain elements of coverage for the state's mental health population - a hospital uncompensated care fund, medication/pharmacy, and "coordinated care delivery systems." In the system, an accountable hospital-centered program paid a fixed amount to cover about 40% of the state's mental illness population who elected to participate. As there is no reimbursement for outpatient clinic and all non-hospital services, providers and consumers now are scrambling to seek disability determination or enroll in Medicare type coverage after the six month state mental illness coverage enrollment period ends.
