Health Management Associates (HMA) Webinar
Many states are looking to health homes to coordinate care and reduce costs for individuals with complex physical and behavioral health needs as well as for individuals with serious and persistent mental health conditions. The District of Columbia is a unique urban environment facing challenges to serve a large Medicaid population with a high prevalence of behavioral health issues. Yet, DC has been a leader in leveraging its health home strategy to drive widespread delivery system transformation – aligning a vision for improved health with policy, payments, and a real-world understanding of the needs and capabilities of providers.
During this webinar, leaders from the DC Departments of Behavioral Health and Health Care Finance will describe how they set a course toward integrated care with the structure of the DC health homes, and provide important lessons learned for other states. The webinar will also address how providers can play an important role during the policy planning process to ensure the effectiveness and feasibility of state initiatives and requirements.
