MHA is a contracting partner with the three managed care companies—Sunflower, Optum, and Amerigroup—to provide health home services to persons with serious mental illness. Health home services follow a care management model in which all of the professionals involved in a member’s care communicate with one another so that the client’s medical, behavioral, and social service needs are addressed in a comprehensive manner.
The goal of the services is to
- Improve care
- Improve health outcomes
- Lower Medicaid costs
- Reduce preventable hospitalizations and emergency room visits.
The coordination of a client’s care is done through a dedicated care manager who oversees and coordinate access to all of the services a member requires in order to facilitate better health.
