Outpatient and Inpatient Coverage
Do you run a hospital or clinic in one of Arkansas’ 40+ Healthcare Provider Shortage Areas? Do you refer patients out when you could have an in-house psychiatric specialist? Stay competitive. Recruit your own provider for F/T, P/T, or occasional psychiatry coverage.
Arkansas Medicaid reimburses for telepsychiatry, and so do commercial insurances in the state. Medicare also reimburses for telepsychiatry and provides a $24.24 telepsychiatry bonus per visit.
How much does Arkansas invests in mental health services per capita? Arkansas spends more than Texas, but less than Louisiana, Oklahoma, Mississippi, Missouri, and Tennessee. Together we are investing in the future generations of Arkansans.
