Financing Coordinated Specialty Care for First Episode Psychosis: A Clinician/Advocate’s Guide

This resource was selected by SMI Adviser content partners and approved by the SMI Adviser clinical expert team for inclusion in the knowledge base.

This issue brief provides a conceptual overview of strategies that can be employed to fully cover the costs of Coordinated Specialty Care (CSC) for persons with first episode psychosis (FEP). It is written for clinicians and advocates so that they can understand the issues involved in achieving cost-based reimbursement for CSC. Our goal is to inform clinicians of the funding challenges and options to address those challenges so that they can effectively discuss them with administrators and policy staff and pursue options that lead to a financially sustainable program.
