Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health concern in the United States. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, 40 million adults in the U.S. have an anxiety disorder, and the numbers are rising. Though there are different treatment plans for each type of anxiety disorder, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is recommended as the first-line of treatment. Accarent Health continues to expand its bundled offering with The Johns Hopkins Hospital to include cognitive behavioral treatment for obsessive compulsive disorder, Tourette’s syndrome, and anxiety disorders.
The doctors and staff at the Johns Hopkins Hospital Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences treat adults, adolescents and children in more than a dozen specialty areas. Treatment is provided by a leading expert in the assessment and treatment of these disorders. Each bundled episode of care includes a psycho-diagnostic evaluation to identify and differentiate specific disorders from common co-occurring mental health conditions, psychological education about the patient’s diagnosis, cognitive strategies to manage and overcome the condition, and exposure to practice overcoming distress related to the condition, and can be delivered in either an intensive or weekly format and will involve family members as appropriate.
The Accarent Health care management platform grants access to pre-negotiated, fixed bundled prices for complex medical procedures and treatments, and offers a variety of behavioral health treatment bundles, eliminating unpredictable costs and providing increased access to quality care. Certified nurse case managers and concierges make up the Accarent Care Team. They help the patient navigate the process, answer questions, coordinate care with providers, and assist with lodging and transportation.
