Course Description

The Impact of Health Care Reform on Social Work: Quality vs. Quantity explores the implications of healthcare policy on social work practice. This course offers a comprehensive review of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008 (MHPAEA) within the context of medical and mental health service delivery. Among the issues explored are: health insurance reform, cost-containment and limitations. Participants will be able to evaluate the impact of ACA’s new integrated health care models, which mandate participating exchange programs to cover behavioral health care, expanded role of health homes in providing inpatient care to those diagnosed with chronic mental illness, and the shift to community-based mental health services. Practitioners will also learn how to decode common healthcare jargon into simplified terms such that they can help educate their clients and effectively advocate on their behalf.
