Behavioral healthcare is constantly evolving and changing, now more than ever. Behavioral health has been front and center for the last few years. Events like the COVID-19 Pandemic, among other things, have shaken up behavioral health and what it looks like for many people. Now, in 2023, there are new things trending within the behavioral health world. At Nextus Billing Solutions, we make it a point to stay up to date on these latest trends. Not only do we keep ourselves updated and informed but we also share any research we may gather. Read on to check out the latest trends in behavioral health care in 2023:

Working Parents

Working parents are experiencing a rise in their personal behavioral health like never before. As they juggle both the demands of their careers and the needs of their homes and families, they are experiencing issues with mental health and substance abuse. Not only is this affecting them as parents but it is also affecting their children. Studies show that 20% of adults and 16% of children are experiencing some sort of behavioral health disorder. At Nextus Billing Solutions, we believe that our management of behavioral health billing and claims directly impacts providers’ ability to be able to properly care for their patients, both parents and children alike. We fight tirelessly to make sure that you can keep your focus on the people who need you and your services most, while we handle the logistics. 

Employer Demand

A trend that we believe will begin to have a positive impact on behavioral healthcare is the increase in employer demand. What this means is that employers all over the country are calling for more care to be offered to their employees. The effects of the behavioral health epidemic are affecting those in the workforce at a rapid pace. It’s causing businesses to see dips in several different areas. Our hats go off to the employers that realize and understand the importance of providing services for their employees to be able to care for their mental health. At Nextus, we commit to continue tracking the trends in this area so that we can better inform ourselves of what is to come in the future for behavioral healthcare and the workforce.

More Data, Better Care

Another trend in 2023 that will be great for behavioral healthcare is the idea that as we collect more data and statistics around behavioral health, we should start to see better care provided. Knowledge truly is power when it comes to matters involving behavioral health. The more data we see come through, the more providers will be able to establish the needs of their patients. As behavioral health providers begin to better understand the needs of those seeking care, they can adjust accordingly and provide the best care possible. Nexus Billing Solutions is committed to making sure that we handle everything properly on a billing and claims level so that our clients, the providers, can handle everything properly on a patient care level. We treat their business like it’s our own because we truly believe that it is.

These 3 trends are just a few of the many that are starting to arise in 2023. At Nextus, we are always doing our best to stay up to date on trends in changes within the behavioral healthcare world. The more we know, the better we are able to serve our clients and care for their billing and claims. To learn more about Nextus Billing Solutions, visit our website today.
