In this BHACA webinar, Kathleen (Kathy) Reynolds, LMSW, ACSW, Vice President for Health Integration and Wellness with The National Council for Behavioral Health reviews newly updated information from SAMHSA-HRSA Center for Integrated Health Solutions (CIHS) regarding codes that may be used to help maximize available funding streams for integrated health care in Texas.
