Correcting Psychiatry's False Assumptions and Implementing Parity
The May 2015 issue of Psychiatric Times features an article written by Riggs Associate Medical Director and Director of Admissions Eric Plakun, MD, DLFAPA, FACPsych. In his article, “Correcting Psychiatry’s False Assumptions and Implementing Parity,” Dr. Plakun outlines what he views as psychiatry’s three false assumptions and the struggle for the full implementation of parity for mental health care in the current managed care environment in the United States. A PDF of the entire article is available for download in the Professional Publications area of our Resource Center.
