You will choose a real or hypothetical mental health related practice for your Budget Assignments in this class. Whether this is a non-profit or for-profit sole proprietorship, limited liability corporation, sub-s corporation, or other, you will need to identify the sources of income based on your prospective clientele. After reviewing the provisions of the MHPAEA of 2008 and the President’s 2016 SAMHSA related budget, discuss the mental health clientele payer sources (e.g., private pay, traditional health insurance, Medicare/Medicaid, managed care, grants). Then, differentiate between each type of clientele by payer source listing at least one strength/weakness from a budgetary perspective. Your initial post should be at least 300 words.
