3. Which Services? From Which Providers? In What Networks? With What Goals and Expectations? For How Long? How Reimbursed? With How Much Information and Choice? With What Level of State Oversight? 3

4. Poor engagement: system not patient failure? Office/program based service delivery Fragmentation and lack of coordination : within medical and BH systems Lack of accountability Reactive vs. preventive Crisis response = ER, Detox and Inpatient 4

5. Low Outcomes/Expectations: Maintenance, Symptom Management its the illness Chronic Condition = Lifelong Services Relapses and Readmissions Expected Deficit and illness based not skills or recovery based Power not partnership Poverty not economic self sufficiency 5

6. Shame, Stigma and discrimination Loss of hope Dehumanizing care Loss of rights and choices around where you live, with whom and around major life decisions Isolation; expectations of single, childless life Idleness: Lack of social meaningful roles work, school. 6

7. Poverty (reliance on entitlements) Loss of personal and family relationships Loss of sexuality (medication side effects) Criminalization of emergency care: handcuffs, police, coercion, Lack of health literacy Complex eligibility, coverage and admission criteria Absence of gender or culturally appropriate services 7

8. At risk, high cost, high needs unengaged Medicaid beneficiaries Lack hope, stable housing, accurate addresses, health literacy, transportation, organization Often have multiple ongoing conditions including psychiatric conditions, addictions, AIDS, hepatitis, diabetes, cardiovascular illnesses Medicaid expansion Commercial insurance 8

9. People are poor, idle, isolated, segregated and sicklack health, hope, purpose and community. People have chronic conditions, dying 15-25 years earlier due to higher rates of obesity, diabetes, lung and cardiovascular diseases Federal, state and local governments spend huge amounts of public funds on healthcare, homeless, criminal justice services to people w chronic conditions The total costs of drug abuse and addiction due to use of tobacco, alcohol and illegal drugs are estimated at $559 billion a year. (Surgeon Generals report 2004; ONDCP; 2004; Harwood, 2000) 9

10. $54 billion Medicaid Program 20% (1 million beneficiaries) use 80% of these $ Hospital, emergency room, medications, services 40% have behavioral health conditions NY last in nation in avoidable readmissions, costing $800m to $1 billion 70% have BH diagnoses, 3/5 of these admissions are for medical reasons Add 85% unemployment, high rates of homelessness and incarceration Lots of $ Spent, Very Poor Outcomes 10

11. Triple Aim : improving outcomes, improving quality, reducing cost Medicaid/managed care expansion , BH parity Focus on better coordinated, accountable and integrated physical and behavioral health care Major emphasis on home and community based services and less reliance on institutional care Promoting wellness, preventing relapses upstream Person centered individualized care 11

12. Financial Pressures : federal, state and local governments cant continue to fund uncoordinated, inefficient, costly services that dont produce good healthcare outcomes Affordable Care Act: coordinated, active, engaging, accountable, integrated outcome oriented, person centered Managed Care Expansion: brings flexibility and interest in funding peer services and addressing social determinants Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act Olmstead Enforcements : pressures states to serve people with disabilities in most integrated not institutional settings Consumer, Rehab & Recovery Movements : have ready made models to promote choice, rights, wellness, community integration, life beyond services, alternatives 12

13. Recovery is not only possible, it is expected Providing tools to promote and protect choice : Wellness Recovery Action Plans, Advance Directives, Recovery Capital Scales and Recovery Management Plans Outreach : going to the person, not expecting the person to come to us Engagement based on hope, empathy and starting where the person is 13

14. We are not responsible for the illness or trauma but we are responsible for our recovery and our choices We are not our illness or label Recovery = risk and responsibility Cant be person-centered and self directed if we dont explore what we want and make a commitment to try Fully informed choice 14

15. Integrating services to work in a more coordinated, collaborative, activist and accountable fashion through federally incentivized health home networks Integrating health, pharmacy, mental health and addiction services under managed care Rewarding outcomes vs paying for visits 15

16. Some states are preparing to carve in Medicaid behavioral health services, turning them over to the coordination of managed health insurance plans . Plans will be paid on a capitated per person per month basis for outcomes not visits. Plans will authorize payments to contracted providers and networks based on their success in engaging and serving beneficiaries.and reducing avoidable costs. 16

17. Managed care companies and BHOs have great flexibility beyond traditional Medicaid rules and more narrow medical necessity restrictions to buy approved non traditional services that are proven to work, if the states design expects, rewards and enforces those values. 17

18. By October 2014, currently carved out Fee for Service OMH and OASAS services will be integrated into upstate managed care plans, either on their own or in partnership with a qualified Behavioral Health Organization. 18

19. Those services include OMH/OASAS mental health and substance abuse inpatient and clinic services OMH Medicaid services like PROS, ACT, IPRT, ACT, CDT, Partial Hospital, CPEP, Targeted Case Management and rehab supports within community residences and OASAS Medicaid services like Opioid treatment and outpatient chemical dependence rehabilitation. 19

20. Will provide a range of more intensive services for individuals with significant behavioral health needs. 20

29. A health home is a hub not a house Health homes are multidisciplinary teams comprised of medical, mental health, and addiction treatment providers and social services organizations who work together to improve care and reduce costs for those with more serious ongoing conditions 29

30. Health home lead agencies provide: Dedicated care managers who assure that enrollees receive all needed medical, behavioral, and social services from their assembled networks of treatment, housing and social services in accordance with a single care management plan that is shared with all providers via an electronic healthcare record 30

31. Health homes are accountable for reducing avoidable health care costs , specifically preventable hospital admissions/readmissions, skilled nursing facility admissions and emergency room visits and meeting quality measures. Active engagement 24-7 response Focus on well coordinated discharge and treatment planning 31

32. Health home leaders get a monthly rate for each person served that pays for care management, electronic health care record system and administrative costs. Health home network members continue to bill existing funding streams.until the move to managed care. 32

33. Current plans are to lock in and track all carved in behavioral health dollars to guard against migration of funds and to reinvest all savings into enhancing needed services At the outset, the average per person per year cost for HAPR services is $30,000. The recently enhanced monthly rate for high touch health home enrollees with behavioral health needs is about $950. 33

51. We try to see the world through the eyes of the people we support, rather than viewing them through an illness, diagnosis and deficit based lens. We learn to ask what happened..not whats wrong? We form mutually accountable relationships: both parties are invited to share experience and learn and grow together 51

52. We start where people are.and offer encouragement for people to define and move towards the goals and the life they seek We foster hope through example and trust through empathy and mutuality. We look beyond individual responsibility for change and examine the impact of relationships and communities We support and connect people to multiple pathways to recovery 52

53. We are not assistant case managers or transportation aides; nor are we cheap staff who get people to take their medicine. On the other hand, we can help a person with appointments and medications IF they define those needs as part of their self defined wellness and recovery plan 53
