Reimbursement of Apps for Mental Health

WASHINGTON DC-June 11, 2019: Apps are playing a growing role in the delivery of mental healthcare. Nonetheless, there is no single means through which they are being reimbursed. To highlight the diverse set of pathways that are being used for reimbursement in the mHealth industry, Adam C. Powell, PhD., delivered the lunchtime keynote on the subject at the 2019 Mental Health America Policy Institute. Other speakers at the event included Congressman Markwayne Mullin, and leaders in digital health, such as Megan Coder of the Digital Therapeutics Alliance, Yuri Maricich of Pear Therapeutics, Anil Jina of Akili Interactive, and Adam Brickman of Omada Health.

Although a recording of Dr. Powell’s lecture is not available, it closely mirrored an article he wrote on the subject with Matthias Bowman and Henry Harbin: Reimbursement of Apps for Mental Health: Current Practices and Potential Pathways.
