BGL Managing Director Jonathan Bluth was quoted in a recent article from Behavioral Health Business entitled, “It’s a Question of Diversification: ABA Providers May Need to Become More Risk Averse.”
The article discusses how the autism services industry may undergo a similar shift to what has happened in other industries, where payors strategically modify reimbursement based on where services are provided.
Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) therapy companies provide treatment in multiple settings, including schools, company-owned centers, and patient’s homes, and each is reimbursed differently by each state’s payors. As payors across the country are increasingly adjusting what they pay in each of these venues, companies that are more diversified may be perceived as less risky by investors.
