APA Convention 2021 Virtual 

National data on third party payer group therapy reimbursement and utilization:  Presentation at APA Convention August 12-14, 2021

Presenters: Martyn Whittingham, Ph.D., Pete Mallow, Ph.D., Cheri Marmarosh, Ph.D and Michael Scherer, Ph.D.

This presentation is a first look at the previously unseen patterns of third party payment for group therapy.  It will explore a data set from FAIR Health (who collect data from over 150 million patients) that assesses patterns of utilization and reimbursement for psychological codes. The presentation will compare group therapy utilization and reimbursement to individual and other therapy codes, while also exploring the impact of setting (where do different therapies take place?) and patterns of emergency department use.  Snapshots of single year use will be contrasted with multi-year patterns of data related to emergency department visits by those with mental health, substance abuse and dual diagnosis designations. 

We will have a discussion / office hour on August 13th, from 1-2pm. However, the presentation can be viewed and downloaded once the convention begins. If attending the office hours, it is recommended that the presentation be viewed first.
