Ohio's Next Step to Modernize Medicaid: the Behavioral Health Redesign

Today in Ohio, more than 400,000 adults and children receive behavioral health services - encompassing both mental health and substance use services - at a cost of approximately $900 million. Furthermore, Medicaid members needing treatment for mental health or substance abuse disorders represent 27 percent of Ohio Medicaid enrollment, but account for 47 percent of Medicaid spending.

The Ohio Behavioral Health (BH) Redesign, part of Governor Kasich's plan to modernize Ohio's Medicaid program, is being implemented to rebuild community behavioral health system capacity across the state through the integration of physical and behavioral healthcare services to support patient care. The plan was fully integrated by July 1, 2018.

Join us for a conversation on the status of the BH Redesign and how it will affect beneficiaries, providers, patients, and stakeholders.
