VIDEO: What recent health care reform means for psychiatrists

ATLANTA — Sharat P. Iyer, MD, MS, of Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, explains how the changing landscape of health care affects mental health clinicians, mental health care and individuals receiving mental health care.

“There is a lot changing in how we fund and how we pay for mental health care in this country, and that goes for not only mental health care but especially for substance use disorders,” Iyer told Healio.com/Psychiatry.

Much of this is due to health care reform that has occurred in the last eight years, Iyer said.

Overall, these changes are positive, as they place a greater focus on quality measurements and standards.
