The Future of Psychological Services in the Era of Integrated Care
11/7/2014

The provision of health care in the United States is undergoing structural changes that are having, and will continue to have, an impact on the delivery of psychological services. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) and the movement toward the integration of health care services are both major drivers of the changes underway. This conference will examine and discuss how the ACA is affecting the delivery of mental health services, the challenges and opportunities presenting for psychologists by the efforts toward integration, how these are manifesting at the state level in Michigan, and how the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan Physician Group Incentive Program, which is open to psychologists, has evolved within this context.
