Med-IT: Behavioral Health Integration
It has been proven that combining general care with behavioural and mental health care improves patient outcomes. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recognizes that mental and behavioral health care are linked, and Medicare pays physicians and non-physician practitioners separately for BHI services. Our BHI service is part of the FQHC/RCH G0511 codes and supports CMS code 99484.
Patients in our BHI program will benefit from ongoing relationships with our health coaches and care team, as well as individualized care planning tailored to the patient's own goals and interests in relation to their specific health problem, as well as facilitation and coordination with their primary care provider.
