ASAM Alignment Presentation - Shared screen with speaker view
Who can see your viewing activity?
Thank you Anita for the Dad Jokes in advance of Father’s Day!
I like your humor! Thank you!
My understanding from a methadone provider that we are trying to coordinate care with is that the services are bundled (medication and therapy) billing wise which would make it duplicate billing
Maybe I don't understand enough about this process?
as a COE MAT provider, we have this same question
We don't have the means ourselves to transport - but the facility is 20-30 minutes away.
Will the alignment be delayed due to barriers? Run the alignment as a pilot for a while?
One the issues from a residential standpoint isn't always ability to transport based on distance but it is the one to one staff while the client waits to dose because they don't have a set time just a window in some cases
We do not have the ability to provide that service.
Yes, we do not have the means to transport however we are on a bus route.
We refer individuals but we do not provide transportation
local MTD provider only does op we can offer iop / php but the billing is the issue I think.
Our nearest methadone provider is an hour or more away so transportation would be incredibly difficult as well as a potential barrier to a patient getting all of the programming required each day
They aren't waiting for therapy.. they are waiting in the dosing line
We tend to use take homes in our system to avoid this all together which does work much better for us
Risk of transporting patients is always a concern as well
If you are an outpatient provider do you have to provide transportation or is that just inpatient providers?
Aren't take home doses time-limited right now and based upon COVID waivers?
from the MAT side there is also a concern for the liability of the medication, especially if there is no medical staff available to oversee patients medication dosing while they are in a residential or inpt setting
@Beth for Methadone the waiver has actually expanded the number of days a take home can be provided for but within our system we normally work with the local clinic to get take homes in 6-7 day periods during the residential stay
Ok, thanks Amanda
also COVID take-home expansion will expire as of sept 30-unless status changes til then
We have a provider choice form we review with all clients
Is there documentation from DDAP stating that they are no longer requiring the two hours groups? This is not something we were aware of...
The 6 hours of clinical time per day for 3.5 would require individual client notes? I wasn't aware that the 2 , 2 hour small groups had been suspended? Was there an alert?
Has Magellan considered the increased cost associated with these new requirements?
Hi Tim, a survey was circulated to providers (someone else within your agency may have completed this) where we asked some questions to get a sense of the cost increase/drivers providers were anticipating for each LOC
