Insurance & Managed Care

The Practice Organization’s Office of Legal and Regulatory Affairs (LRA) assists members with health insurance and managed care issues. Our staff experts work collaboratively with insurers to smooth out practitioners’ billing, audit and claims issues. The Practice Organization also collaborates with state psychological associations to pursue government agency complaints and lawsuits that challenge abusive practices by health insurance and managed care companies.

Our legal and regulatory team provides consultation and resources to Practice Organization members on responding to audits and other practice-related legal and regulatory issues. Last year, our staff experts fielded 1,000 calls with practitioners. This benefit is exclusive to Practice Organization members. To schedule a consultation, contact the Legal and Regulatory Affairs Office.
