Mental health integration: Under the law, behavioral health benefits now must be offered under the same terms as physical health benefits. How those services should be delivered, however, is still up for debate – driven in part by ongoing stigma about mental health and substance abuse and also driven by parallel systems for service delivery both in the insured population and in programs supported by the federal government (through HRSA and SAMHSA). Recent efforts have been made to push for the closer integration of physical and mental health services. As an advisor to the state Medicaid director in a state where behavioral health services have been carved out of Medicaid managed care programs but where your Medicaid expansion program has brought in new beneficiaries who have behavioral health needs that exceed the capacity of the behavioral health delivery system, you have been tasked with assessing approaches to greater integration of behavioral health services with physical health services. The slides attached have options for policy recommendations. Any state that has sufficient information/research on mental health will suffice. Thank you!
