The implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) has resulted in many changes that affect addiction, mental health, and medical professionals, especially regarding substance use prevention and treatment services like SBIRT. Professionals and organizations must be informed of how the ACA affects addiction treatment and recovery services in order to remain compliant, as well as maximally benefit from this historic bill. This free webinar primes you on the issues you want to know regarding how the ACA influences treatment models, patient profiles, service delivery, reimbursement, policy, your professional practice, and services like SBIRT.
