Virtual Forum: The Impact Of Integrated Health Homes On Mental Health Service Delivery
Location: Online Via PsychU.org
Description: The Medicaid health home option was established under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 and implementation began in 2011. In this virtual forum you will hear from two experts – one representing a payer and one from a provider—about how these programs are working to coordinate the physical and behavioral needs of vulnerable consumers. You can take advantage of on-the-ground information on what works and what barriers can arise. The presenters are Carole Matyas; Vice President of Behavioral Health Operations, WellCare Health Plan; and Katie Arjes, Director of Integrated Health Home Program at Unity Point Health – Blackhawk Grundy Mental Health Center. The virtual
forum will conclude with time for questions from the audience.
