State Innovations to Improve Integrated Care
Individuals with mental health and substance use conditions and comorbid chronic health conditions face increased morbidity and mortality. Improving access for people with these conditions requires more than integrated health care services — it requires health systems integration.
State-led initiatives in Medicaid and critical federal integrated care program support and models, such as the Promoting the Integration of Primary and Behavioral Health Care (PIPBHC) grant program and Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHC), aim to improve health, enhance care and reduce costs that are associated with developing person-centered systems of care that address an individual’s health holistically.
