After completing two rounds of pilots with partners across the three Natural Communities of Care (NCCs) and receiving their input, OCH is close to releasing a final version of the OCH Physical Health/Behavioral Health Change Plan (PHBHCP). Here is a preliminary draft of the PHBHCP. This document details outcomes and tactics that implementing partners offering physical health, behavioral health, and/or substance use disorder care services will be eligible to participate in to meet Medicaid Transformation Project goals. The OCH board recently adopted a Medicaid Transformation Payment Policy outlining guidelines and expectations of implementing partners.
Here is a timeline of what has happened with the Medicaid Transformation Project (MTP) so far in 2018 and a tentative timeline of upcoming developments.
