Terrific breadth of services Stuart
Feel free to utilize the chat box for any questions you have during Dr. Yeasted's presentation.
Stuart, you mentioned that you are finding more sustainable reimbursement for the services you offer through the CEO and PacMAT grants. Is that work mainly through direct negotiations with individual payors? Any advice for other providers on how to quantify the value of their services and identify sustainable funding?
We have found that the bundled payments we get from being a Center of Excellence for OUD have given us a great model for sustainable teamcare, This is a $277 PMPM that can be dropped via a G code when any team member meets face to face with any member of a medicaid MCO. We are currently working with other payers, mostly commerical to expand this model for other patients.
We also have been trying to quantify the costs of comorbid conditions such as infective endocarditis with valve replacements, bone and soft tissue infections, HIV and HCV infection, hypoxic brain damage after OD etc and look at savings associated with screening, prevention and treatment of SUDs that reduce these co-morbidities. The return on this investment can be attractive to say the least once they can recognize the full cost of SUD among members.
Thank you to the presenters.
Great work. Dr Yeasted --could you speak to the considerations around building internal MAT capacity versus enhancing partnerships. Also curious about what you think practitioners preferences may be in this regard.
our team would be happy to academic detailing to help your practices to incorporate MOUD into practice
Hi , this is the community outreach specialist from Gateway Rehab...
I would like to say that we DO provide MAT and have for years. I understand there was some misunderstanding here...
We also can do buprenorphine detailing to AHN and other practices
i would posit that stigma is the issue not the time in primary care
