Together, the partners will further New York State’s vision for Behavioral Health Medicaid Managed Care, and through the DSRIP program (Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment), initiate services that will support clinical innovation and improved population health.
We are pleased to announce that MHA- CBHS has been asked by both the Westchester County Medical Center and Montefiore Medical Center to play a significant role in the Performing Provider System (PPS) Networks of their DSRIP applications. MHA’s CEO, Amy Kohn has agreed to chair the Behavioral Health Committee of the Westchester County Medical Center initiative and is charged with developing the DSRIP needs assessment and two behavioral health transformation projects based on the results of the needs assessment. In Dr. Kohn’s words, “This is a tremendous honor and I am extremely excited to take a leadership role in such a significant initiative”.
To learn more about DSRIP, view a brief video in which New York State Medicaid Director, Jason Helgerson, discusses its key concepts.
Sweeping changes are being implemented in the way NYS structures and funds publicly-financed behavioral health care.
The NYS Office of Mental Health has just released its Interim Report which describes these changes as well as initiatives funded under the 2014-2015 Budget in each region of the State.
