Insurance companies are increasingly conducting reviews of behavioral health and substance abuse treatment program providers and are looking for cases of fraud and abuse. Their special investigation units are demanding the recoupment of fees paid to such programs based on lack of licensure, certification, and accreditation, questions regarding the appropriateness of claims, and questions regarding the adequacy of documentation for clinical services.
