ICD-10, DSM-5, and Coding & Billing for
Behavioral Health and Developmental Disability Services
Friday, September 18, 2015
9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Don’t be caught off guard without training on the new ICD-10 code changes! Denials, delays, and “more information required” are increasingly common responses from Medicare, managed care, and insurance companies for behavioral health and developmental disability claims and requests for payment. Procedure code and policy changes have further complicated the reimbursement process for all social workers, psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists, counselors, and clinical nurse specialists. Consolidating all of the new requirements with existing code rules and implementing proven billing techniques are the objectives of this concise, one-day seminar. Participants will learn the most current and accurate coding procedures coupled with documentation tips and complete definitions to ensure prompt and optimal payment for future insurance claims.
Managing People: 3-Part Certificate Series
** SOLD OUT **
Wednesday, October 21 & 28, 2015 & Wednesday, November 4, 2015
9:30a.m. – 4:30p.m.
Managing People is a 3-Part series which cannot be broken into singular parts.
October 21 – Introduction to Leadership: Supervisors are responsible for the quality of other people’s work. In order to do their job effectively, organizations must provide supervisors with the tools to influence their direct reports. This session focuses on the manner in which the interpersonal conduct of the supervisor allows him/her to develop leadership qualities that will have a salutary influence on those for whom he/she is accountable. Topics include the role of the manager as a supervisor, the development of leadership, managing critical moments, employee involvement, communications and more.
October 28 – Introduction to Supervision: One of the most important roles of any supervisor is to help employees perform tasks in effective ways. This session focuses on the ways supervisors can help staff develop their abilities and understanding of appropriate roles as independent variables resulting in better performance. Topics include the role of the supervisor, delegation and accountability, negotiating expectations, positive reinforcement and mechanisms to help improve performance.
November 4 – Counseling & Discipline: All supervisors will eventually conduct a counseling session to discuss apparent performance problems. This course will treat a counseling session as a method to avoid discipline as well as a coaching activity consistent with the need to help staff find ways to overcome the challenges they face at work. Topics include the role of the supervisor, an introduction to conducting counseling sessions, writing counseling memos, an overview of discipline as well as a look at disciplinary action case studies.
