CCBHC Sustainability Learning and Action Series
November 2022 – January 2023
This Learning Series is designed for CCBHC grantees interested in learning and understanding the different pathways to building and maintaining a sustainable plan for the CCBHC model. The curriculum for this Learning Series will review approaches to collaborating with states and other stakeholders to build the value case for statewide CCBHC implementation, transitioning from a grant program to state certification, and effective strategies to optimize future billing opportunities.
Session 1: Building the Value Case for Statewide CCBHC Implementation
Date/Time: Monday, November 14, 2-3pm ET
Summary: This session will identify how CCBHC-E grantees align and organize alongside other grantees, state associations and other stakeholders to educate and communicate the value of CCBHCs and explore pathways for statewide implementation. We will showcase how clinics have used data to demonstrate the impact of their program to effectively engage their states in conversations about CCBHC implementation.
Session 2: Transitioning from Grant Programs to State Certification
Date/Time: Monday, December 5, 2-3pm ET
Summary: With the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act paving a pathway to expand the CCBHC demonstration program nationwide, many grantees could have the opportunity to transition to a state certified CCBHC program in coming years. This session will identify strategies for using your CCBHC grant program to prepare your organization for certification, where available, and how to leverage attestation as practice for certification.
Session 3: Financing for Sustainability – Understanding Your Costs and Preparing for New Payment Models
Date/Time: Monday, January 9th, 2-3pm ET
Summary: Understanding and optimizing your costs as a CCBHC is critical for sustainability of services. This session will identify processes CCBHC-E grantees can establish to capture their costs and optimize billing as a CCBHC, as well as considerations for alternative payment models.
