Medical Necessity Assessment

A clinical decision support tool for guiding treatment plan recommendations.

Research shows that ABA treatment for autism is influenced by treatment intensity and clinician adherence to recommended dosage. Proper dosage can improve skill mastery, adaptive skills, and overall outcomes, but can be negatively impacted by communication barriers among stakeholders, lack of clinician training, mandates from funding sources, and limited research.

Rethink’s patent-pending Medical Necessity Assessment, created by clinicians for clinicians, aims to improve the accuracy and adherence of dosage recommendations based on medical necessity.

More than anything, it’s given our BCBAs confidence in conversations with payors, and they aren’t second-guessing their own recommendation because they have the tool to confirm this is what the patient needs. That confidence is really important for new BCBAs and those who may be going through their first peer review.
