Marie E. Casciari will be presenting with a line-up of mental health parity and insurance benefits experts at the “Insurance Claims: Empowering Your Clients for Coverage” Webinar.   

The presenters will discuss the underpinnings of insurance parity laws related to mental health and substance use treatment. The speakers will also discuss ideas as to how psychologists, social workers, therapists, and clinicians could help reduce the insurance benefits stress and support patients with their efforts to access insurance coverage.

The program is presented in partnership between The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, The Kennedy Forum of Illinois, and the Austin Riggs Center.  It will take place on November 16 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm CST.  Participants can earn 1-hour CEU credit.
