Please join the Indiana Council of Community Mental Health Centers (Indiana Council) for an important statewide meeting related to the changing landscape in behavioral healthcare service delivery. Given the potential for extensive changes in the federal Medicaid program, it becomes important for the community mental health center system to develop new strategic initiatives in partnership with state policy makers designed around performance or risk based service delivery models. Such an approach is designed to improve service delivery and consumer outcomes while bending the Medicaid cost curve. For CMHCs to be an important player in the new healthcare environment, we must demonstrate the value our system provides as the most cost effective for behavioral and primary health treatment given administrative, operational, and financial factors. Hear from a national leader in redesigning health systems who will provide demonstrated evidence that the CMHC system is the logical choice to provide comprehensive treatment services to the 5% of the Medicaid population contributing to 50% of overall Medicaid costs.

In addition, the Indiana Council is focused on providing “best practice” concepts to the membership to ensure services already being provided by certain CMHCs are understood and potentially adopted by other CMHCs seeking similar program outcomes. For this conference, the Indiana Council is highlighting our Addiction Committee leadership, who will provide best practice programming for both Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT), as well as criminal justice behavioral health service delivery. We will also focus attention on better understanding the potential implications of MACRA on the CMHC system. Currently, MACRA’s Quality Payment Program aims to reduce administrative burden on physicians so they can focus on care improvement, promote adoption of value-based care, and smooth the transition to new models of care.  Finally, please join us on Thursday, May 11 for the Indiana Council Reception, where we will take the opportunity to honor three retiring CMHC CEOs who have given enormous time and energy to the development of the community mental health center system in Indiana and the consumers we serve.
