Medication Review Program for Second Opinion Network (SON)
Seattle Children's Hospital provides pediatric mental health second-opinion medication reviews. Second-opinion reviews are required when a psychiatric medication is prescribed outside of guidelines set by the Pediatric Mental Health Workgroup. Seattle Children’s schedules second-opinion reviews between their psychiatrists and the pediatric prescribers within Molina’s network after the SON receives the necessary information about the child and the requested medication dosage. In addition, they are responsible for sending the written second opinion review back to HCA.
As part of the authorization process, prescribers are required to engage in a phone consultation from the SON. If a SON review is required, the SON team will call the prescriber to schedule an appointment. To receive payment for the phone consultation, use procedure code 99441 on the claim. If you are a prescriber and have any questions, please contact Molina at (800) 869-7165.

UW AIMS Center (Advancing Integrated Mental Health Solutions) - Collaborative Care
Collaborative Care originated in a research culture and has now been tested in more than 80 randomized controlled trials in the US and abroad. Several recent meta-analyses make it clear that Collaborative Care consistently improves on care as usual. It leads to better patient outcomes, better patient and provider satisfaction, improved functioning, and reductions in health care costs, achieving the Triple Aim of health care reform. Collaborative Care necessitates a practice change on multiple levels and is nothing short of a new way to practice medicine, but it works. The bottom line is that patients get better.
