(1 CME) In this conference recording from the 2019 Annual Conference, you will learn:

The Collaborative Care Model of integrated primary and behavioral health care adds a behavioral care manager and addiction specialist to the MAT prescribing team to improve outcomes. This already widely implemented team-based approach to care utilizes key crucial elements from over 90 randomized trials of the model including measurement based care and registry guided changes to treatment for patients who are not improving.  The model has been extensively studied across many psychiatric illnesses including depression and anxiety. Collaborative care has been tested in numerous settings including rural sites and across diverse racial and payer groups and has been found to increase access to effective and evidence-based mental health treatment.  Most recently the SUMMIT (Substance Use Motivation and Medication Integrated Treatment) trial demonstrated using this approach improved engagement in treatment and abstinence from alcohol and drugs at 6 months compared to usual care. New Current Procedural Terminology Codes (CPT) have been developed and released to fund the collaborative care model in primary care settings and offers a unique opportunity to offer this treatment.  This reimbursement mechanism for the crucial behavioral care management tasks that are needed is being utilized nationally to treat a variety of conditions.  The codes have been approved for Medicare, some state Medicaid agencies and with some commercial carriers so the timing is right to get MAT services reimbursement for this robust delivery approach. Some modifications in the model around the key tasks and measurement tools will be necessary in the area of MAT to provide the best level of care and need to be explored more fully. Developing consensus and testing these variations has started and key leaders in the field are exploring what is needed. This session brings together key national leaders with decades of experience in research and implementation of the collaborative care model.  Lori Raney, MD is a Master Trainer through the American Psychiatric Associations Support and Alignment grant from CMMI to train 3,500 psychiatrists in the model and has published extensively on this approach.  Mark Duncan MD is a board certified in both Addiction Psychiatry and Family Medicine and is an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Washington the C-Director of the Psychiatry and Addiction Case Conference (Project ECHO).  Virna Little LCSW, Director of the Center for Innovation in Mental Health at the CUNY School of Public Health, is one of the pioneers of integrated behavior health and brings a wealth of expertise and experience with New York’s Zero Overdose and collaborative care implementation efforts. These speakers will describe the collaborative care model and reimbursement requirements and then engage with the audience in smaller group discussions to describe training needs, tracking and workflow changes as well as measurement-based approaches to demonstrating outcomes specific to OUD.  

Learning Objectives:

1.) List the core elements of effectiveness of the collaborative care model and the roles of the key team members including the consultant addiction specialist
2.) Adapt the collaborative care model to MAT for opioid use disorder while maintaining fidelity to the model including appropriate registry tracking with treatment to target.
3.) Show how the psychiatric collaborative care management CPT codes can be utilized for MAT by capturing key qualifying tasks and processes that lead to successful reimbursement.
