Partnering for Success: Spotlight on Missouri Medicaid and Department of Mental Health
Wednesday, May 31, 2017 | 1:00 PM – 3:30 PM EDT
A SAMHSA sponsored webinar developed under contract by the National Council for Behavioral Health, will take place Wednesday, May 31, 2017 at 2:00pm ET called “Partnering for Success: Spotlight on Missouri Medicaid and Department of Mental Health.”
Medicaid is the largest payer of mental health services. To ensure Medicaid beneficiaries have access to mental health services an effective working relationship between the State Mental Health Authority and the State Medicaid Office is critical.
This webinar will present lessons learned from MO HealthNet and the Department of Mental Health (DMH) on how to successfully partner to improve the lives of individuals living with mental illness. Webinar presenters will explore the reasons MO HealthNet and DMH chose to work together, identify principles and techniques that made their partnership effective, summarize the benefits of a symbiotic relationship, and showcase initiatives that were a direct result of their collaboration.
