State strategies for integrating physician and behavioral health

Share this:


This is a very good review from the Commonwealth Fund of state strategies for integrating physical and behavioral health services as Medicaid is reformed to move toward fee for value from fee for service.

The article notes:

“There is no single pathway through which all states will be able to achieve integrated behavioral and physical healthcare; the best strategy or combination of strategies will depend on a state’s political and healthcare environment. However, regardless of the approach, states will succeed only if they put in place a cohesive framework that enables providers to deliver integrated care to Medicaid patients with comorbid physical and behavioral health needs.”
