American Medical Association’s Behavioral Health Integration Webinar Series
National Government Services is excited to provide some additional resources on BHI from the AMA. This webinar series, titled “BHI Overcoming Obstacles”, will prepare providers to deliver a sustainable and integrated approach to behavioral and mental health care.
In the state of Massachusetts, there is an underutilization of both Psychiatric CoCM and general BHI services within the behavior health community. Both General BHI and CoCM can be a great option for your practice to treat beneficiaries with depression, substance abuse and other behavior health conditions since it integrates care between the primary/treating physician and behavior healthcare professionals. There are some key differences between both care models; for example, Psychiatric CoCM requires use of a care team to deliver services and general BHI can be delivered by the treating practitioner in its entirety.
