Initiatives submitted by OCH partners
After completing two rounds of pilots with partners across the three Natural Communities of Care (NCCs) and receiving their input, OCH has released the final version of the OCH Physical Health/Behavioral Health Change Plan (PHBHCP). These documents detail 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.
