We have been working in the behavioral health industry for almost five years now, and we’re proud that we’re making behavioral health treatment affordable.
Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) December 31, 2014
American HealthCare Lending (AHCL) is projecting to finish 2014 with an annual growth rate of 75% in the behavioral health industry. AHCL has become one of the premier companies in behavioral health financing by offering a revolutionary program that helps make treatment affordable.
Behavioral health makes up a large portion of healthcare spending in America with over $113 billion in annual spending. According to a report by the Washington Post, 45% of people who are untreated for mental health cite cost as their main barrier. The Mental Health Parity Act and Affordable Care Act have good intentions to make behavioral health more widely available, but significant holes still remain in these plans. Treatment for behavioral health is still not fully subsidized by all insurance plans and there are many factors when it comes to coverage including, length of stay and repeat treatments.
The Affordable Care Act has also produced a new challenge in the form of higher deductible insurance plans. Deductibles rose by 154% in 2013 alone, creating a new demographic in need of behavioral health financing.
Financing for mental and behavioral health treatment is made possible through AHCL’s innovative patient financing solution. AHCL’s mental health loans can cover many behavioral health expenses including, but not limited, to wilderness therapy, residential treatment, therapeutic boarding schools, group homes, traditional boarding schools, individual therapy, private practice, and other related specialties.
American HealthCare Lending CEO, Shaun Sorensen explains, “We have been working in the behavioral health industry for almost five years now, and we’re proud that we’re making behavioral health treatment affordable. We hope to continue to do so for many years to come.”
