    AAPC: Back to School
    I know that the law is intended to force health insurers to accept that mental health conditions are HEALTH issues that should get the same levels of coverage as other medical conditions. Right now too many carriers are not providing reimbursement for behavioral health visits which means that most people do not know that are not covered until they need the benefit.

    Can you explain what you mean by hoops to jump through and to whom you're referring?
