Hey Network faithful, this looks like an interesting webinar to attend. Given the swirling winds around Medicaid and what states will ultimately fund, it would be good to hear from seasoned Medicaid experts about how the Affordable Care Act lends itself to focusing on children with serious and complex behavioral needs. For us, the proof is in the pudding, so join this webinar with questions that move beyond what can be done to what states actually are doing with the Medicaid Health Home model.
Using Medicaid Health Homes with Wraparound to Serve Youth Populations with Complex Behavioral Health Needs
- Date: Tuesday, January 22, 2013
- Time 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM pacific (that's 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm for folks on the east coast)
This webinar will provide an overview of the Medicaid Health Home provision of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) and its application to children with serious and complex behavioral health needs. The faculty will describe administrative, workforce, and practice level strategies that states can adopt within the Health Home model to implement a high quality wraparound and intensive care coordination approach for these youths and their families. The overall goal will be to prepare administrators and providers to be able to respond knowledgeably to the opportunity to use Medicaid Health Homes to provide better care at lower costs for youths with complex behavioral health needs and their families drawing on models that have evolved from systems of care.
