DALLAS, July 26, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Elevate Healthcare has terminated their network agreement amid a dispute over denial of medical necessity authorizations, outstanding reimbursements since 2019 and poor active provider list. The two have been engaged in contract negotiations since 2019 and were unable to reach an agreement on May 14, 2021. Elevate Healthcare fees are less than most outpatient programs as we stand by the mental health parity act "affordability and accessibility" removing barriers to obtain mental health care has been our priority since opening our first location.
Our youth deserves access to mental health support without insurances dictating treatment.
Elevate Healthcare will continue reviewing all in-network agreements and process accordingly.
