Upcoming Webinars on Health Care Enrollment

Upcoming Webinars on Health Care Enrollment
Implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and the Paul Wellstone and Pete Domenici Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008 places behavioral health at the forefront of our Nation's health care system. Are you prepared to help enroll this population in health care coverage, and provide necessary—and now reimbursable—behavioral health services?
SAMHSA invites you to join the upcoming two webinars with important partners in the field of mental health and substance use services providers.
