Task Force Purpose

The mission of this task force is focused around creating transparency and increasing knowledge regarding Mental Health Insurance credentialing, contracting, and billing. Currently we are working on the development of an Insurance Usage and Satisfaction Survey for practicing clinicians with questions intended to help us develop Rating Score Cards for Insurance Companies that will be accessible to the general clinical population; the development of a Navigating Insurance Company Credentialing, Contracting and Billing Resource List; and the development of a more active relationship with the Office of the Insurance Commission.

Other Projects or Information

Insurance Score card Survey

The Insurance Report Card Survey is seeking input regarding your experiences working with healthcare insurance, in the areas of: credentialing, contracting, patient benefits, the benefits verification process, claims and claims processing, reimbursements and reimbursement rates, as well as overall provider relations. Whether you direct bill, don’t bill at all, work for an organization that bills for you, or contract with a private biller, whether you are a provider or an administrator working for providers, your input and experiences are invaluable.

If you don't work with insurance companies please still answer just a few questions for us about why that is.

Working with insurance, or choosing not to, is a big decision. One that represents a notable component of not only how providers offer mental healthcare, but also of patient access to care. The intent of collecting this data is to help providers make informed decisions about who they work with, inform future mental healthcare bills, and much more.
