Care Coordination for Medicaid, Dual Eligible and Behavioral Health Populations

Moderator: Lori Evans Bernstein, President, GSI Health

Panelists:
Cynthia Green Edwards, Director Office of Medicaid Information Technology, State of Michigan
Beverly Court, Director Research and Data Analysis Division, Washington Department of Social and Health Services
Josh Hardy, Behavioral Health Informaticist at Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals

Behavioral and mental health services compose a significant portion of the nation’s healthcare spending. Spending projections from the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration estimate that by 2014, the nation will spend $203 billion on mental health care, with Medicaid covering 27 percent and Medicare 12 percent of this cost. The rise of spending on mental health services coupled with the expansion of Medicaid eligibility mandated in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act in 2014 necessitates that CMS, states, providers and payers advance cost-effective care coordination interventions to better control costs while improving the quality of care delivered. This session discusses such initiatives.
