Behavioral Health Home
The Behavioral Health Home (BHH) will provide comprehensive care management and coordination services to Medicaid beneficiaries with a serious mental illness or serious emotional disturbance. For enrolled beneficiaries, the BHH will function as the central point of contact for directing patient-centered care across the broader health care system. Beneficiaries will work with an interdisciplinary team of providers to develop a person-centered health action plan to best manage their care. The model will also elevate the role and importance of Peer Support Specialists and Community Health Workers to foster direct empathy and raise overall health and wellness. In doing so, this will attend to a beneficiary’s complete health and social needs. Participation is voluntary and enrolled beneficiaries may opt-out at any time.
Behavioral Health Home receives reimbursement for providing the following federally mandated core services:
- Comprehensive care management
- Care coordination and health promotion
- Comprehensive transitional care
- Patient and family support
- Referral to community and support services
