Medicaid is the largest source of funding for America’s public mental health system. In 2010, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, also known as national healthcare reform, became law. As the law continues to roll-out, we can anticipate significant changes.
Healthcare reform includes important changes to the entitlement program and many opportunities for states to enhance services provided to beneficiaries. This includes everything from the expansion of Medicaid, establishment of health homes, health insurance exchanges, and essential health benefits.
