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.

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.

Presenters:

  • Joe Parks, former Director MO HealthNet and Medical Director, National Council for Behavioral Health
  • Natalie Fornelli, Manager of Integrated Care, Missouri Department of Mental Health
  • George Oestreich, former Clinical Director MO HealthNet
  • Keith Schafer, former Director Missouri Department of Mental Health
