This 4.5-hour program addresses the profound changes that are taking place in the health system in the United States, the implications for mental health care, and, in turn the implications for mental health care providers.  We begin with a discussion of the role of the insurance industry in health care and how that role has expanded over the past 50-60 years, affecting the licensure and practices of mental health professionals.  From there, we move to the current changes themselves, including the Affordable Health Care Act, Accountable Care Organizations, Current Procedural Terminology, DSM vs. ICD, Electronic Health Care Records, HIPAA changes, insurance panels for independent practitioners, the Parity Law, “Professional Wills,” alternatives to licensed mental health practice, and licensing board action summaries
