How to Avoid the Unauthorized Practice of Medicine by a Mental Health Practice
With the increasing popularity of the formation of mental health practices and licensed mental health facilities, many clients are pursuing business opportunities in the mental health industry as a result of the COVID pandemic. While mental health practices and licensed mental health programs can present a profitable investment opportunity, many clients are not aware that offering certain services constitute the practice of medicine, therefore various legal and practical considerations must be addressed such as the corporate practice of medicine, who can bill for what services, supervisory requirements, and how these considerations interplay with coding and reimbursement for the entity.
This webinar will specifically review what constitutes the unauthorized practice of medicine by a mental health practice, the distinction between medical health practices and a licensed mental health facility, who is permitted to provide the services from a coding and reimbursement standpoint, and common pitfalls to avoid.
