The author also includes samples of commonly used contracts, forms, and protocols, and offers useful suggestions and recommAndations on a breadth of topics including: how to get on managed care panels; how to attract clients; how to provide services that benefit both the client and the customer or third-party payer; how to navigate the ins and outs of compensation; and much more. This book is a timely addition to the literature on the topic of managed care and offers behavioral health care professionals a practical and much-needed resource.
