Examining the Implications of the 2014 Medicaid Expansion for Behavioral Health Services

Starting in 2014, the health care system must be able to accommodate millions of new patients seeking behavioral health services as a result of the Medicaid expansion, new essential health benefits standards, and mental health parity legislation. The currently disjointed systems for financing, administering, and delivering behavioral health services to Medicaid beneficiaries, however, pose major challenges for states, health plans, and providers in meeting the new demand. This project will: 1) examine new opportunities to create integrated care systems that meet the behavioral health needs of beneficiaries; 2) assess administrative, financing, and care delivery hurdles that stand in the way; and 3) identify policy and delivery system strategies that will help ensure access to well-coordinated, comprehensive health care.
