Alan Cabin
Hi... Alan Cabin, CRS Supervisor of the Center of Excellence Program at Gateway Rehab in Pittsburgh
Alan Cabin
Do you ever refer to inpatient facilities for those who require a higher level of care?
Jacqueline O'Duor
i find it difficult to manage retention in care, which of course has worsened due to COVID. Also, getting people comfortable doing video groups.
Jacqueline O'Duor
HI Alan, we do refer to higher levels of care as needed. We "keep the doors open" for shifts in care. As a primary care BHC, I get to continue working with these patients. -Jacqueline O'Duor, BHC, Einstein Hospital Community Practice Center.
Stephen Iannacone
we refer people regularly to inpatient care and/or methadone treatment if we feel things are not working out - typically shared decision making
Alan Cabin
June Caldwell
Do you see a higher percentage of relapse with recently released incarcerated patients?
June Caldwell

Alan, can you say more about state funding? We are looking to start CRS
Catherine Abrams
I'd love to see more access to funding for CRS services in primary care setting!
amanda mulenga
We work with CRS's very heavily in our organization. We truly appreciate the knowledge our CRS's are able to bring to our programs. Our patients have truly benefited from having CRS's as well
Jacqueline O'Duor
Agreed! We just got a CRS in our hospital's ED, his impact is impressive.

CRS is billable through Medicaid. Reach out to your local BHMCO
Mike Krafick
I would also encourage anyone looking to add CRS services to their practice to reach out to the Single County Authority in your area.

There is an RFA from CMS for a demonstration project that some on this call might be eligible for. I am still trying to learn more about it but maybe others could benefit from it - https://innovation.cms.gov/innovation-models/value-in-treatment-demonstration
