Welcome to the Managed Care Catalog!Welcome to CEU By Net!  This Is the Managed Care Courses Catalog, Offering Mental Health and Addiction CEUs for Straight Talk About How to Survive Managed Care.

These Courses Teach the Concept of 'Medical Necessity' for Various Levels of Mental Health and Addiction Treatment.  We Provide Specific Examples of  Effective and Ineffective Ways to Document Your Client's Status, Including Twelve 'Documentation Styles' Which Typically Result in Denial of  Approval by Care Managers and Recoupment of Paid Fees.

Learn How to Audit Your Own Program Records Before the HMO, Insurance Company or State Medicaid Contractor Shows Up at Your Door to Conduct an Onsite Care Management Review!


We offer 10 courses pertaining to Managed Care, all of which address the impact of Managed Care upon private practitioners, agencies, and traditional Provider Networks (read: 'Narrow Networks' and 'Integrated or Vertical Networks') - and upon the funding of treatment services. 

  • We also address the increasing demand for documentation of the need for treatment and the results of that treatment.  It may be 'light years' different than how you were trained to document sensitive and personal client information - but if you want to be paid for the services you provide, it's necessary.

The ACA - A Shift In How We Provide Treatment




Does This Information Apply to YOU?  Yes.

Health Care Reform (aka, 'Managed Care') is now a fact of life, REGARDLESS of the state in which you practice, or what the new Administration does to modify the Affordable Care Act or the type of environment in which you work. While many states are not new to Managed Care, the pervasiveness of working under such a regulated system of health care IS new, with the national need to control the cost of healthcare at all levels.  


Even if your program primarily REFERS clients to other agencies for more intensive services, you need to understand the constraints under which they provide treatment.   



Why is this such an important issue for mental health and addiction treatment providers?  With the expanded implementation of Health Care Reform at the federal, state, and local levels, virtually all insurance carriers and their provider networks are affected.  CEU By Net's Managed Care Courses cover the gamut of issues which concern behavioral health treatment providers, in this age of expanding health care reform.
