Behavioral Healthcare: by David S. Bathory, Psy.D., Bathory International LLC

Behavioral Healthcare consists of mental health and treatment for people with substance abuse problems

In the USA There is both In patient (hospital care that is voluntary, and involuntary) and out patient care (care provided in the community). Involuntary treatment has strict laws that were written to ensure that people’s rights to freedom would not be abused.  The laws are not followed in many of the US States and people can be detained based upon hearsay.  Out patient care is much less expensive to provide than in patient treatment, yet the “need for beds” continues to grow. State hospitals provide long term treatment usually 6 months or more and are paid for by state and federal funds.  Private hospitals provide shorter term care usually a maximum of 30 days and can be paid by private insurance or by state funds.  Misuse and abuse of Behavioral Health Patients is on the rise.  And the USA is disabling (making people dependents on the state) a greater number of people as mentally ill or chronic substance abusers.

Présentation J Mathonnat Bucarest – juin 2013

For France and several other countries, the current crisis (2008-…) has highlighted the need of containing the growth in public spending within the fiscal consolidation strategy required to reduce the high public debt ratio accumulated to mitigate the consequences of the crisis.
Advanced economy – including France – would have to improve their cyclically adjusted primary balance by several points of GDP => requiring both revenue increases and expenditure reduction.
§Public health spending in advanced countries has been characterized by short periods of accelerated growth followed by periods of cost containment.  Since 1970, public health care spending has risen from 3 to 7 percent of GDP in the advanced economies, by far the most important driver of total public spending increases. The growth of public health spending picked up after 2000. This is reflected in a more widespread increase in government spending over the 2000–08, after a period of spending containment in the 1990s.
