Managed Care Interface with PPS Payments

As states steadily transition their Medicaid populations into managed care, managed care organizations will be crucial partners in the success of CCBHC implementation. During the planning year, states are faced with key decisions on the intersection of managed care and the Prospective Payment System (PPS).

Get familiar with the ramifications of each approach through our resources and consulting options below.
