Behavioral Health Home

What is a Behavioral Health Home (BHH)?

A Behavioral Health Home (BHH) will provide comprehensive care management and coordination services to Medicaid beneficiaries with a serious mental illness or serious emotional disturbance. For enrolled beneficiaries, the BHH will function as the central point of contact for directing patient-centered care across the broader health care system. Beneficiaries will work with an interdisciplinary team of providers to develop a person-centered health action plan to best manage their care. The model will also elevate the role and importance of Peer Support Specialists and Community Health Workers to foster direct empathy and raise overall health and wellness. In doing so, this will attend to a beneficiary's complete health and social needs. Participation is voluntary and enrolled beneficiaries may opt-out at any time.

When someone enrolls in the BHH program, they will work closely with a Care Team. This team is designed to help individuals better understand and manage their conditions under one roof, with the goal of simplifying where services are delivered.

The Care Team will work with individuals to create a care plan which will address physical, mental health, substance use, recovery, and social service needs. The team will help identify the services someone needs within the BHH as well as programs in the community that are specific to all your individual healthcare needs.
