CarePlus Selected to Embark on Federal Demonstration Project

ccbhc-house-270x185CarePlus is one of seven agencies selected by the state to participate in the two-year Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (“CCBHC”) demonstration program, a federal payment system that is being implemented in eight states throughout the country.

The vision of the CCBHC demonstration program is to increase access and quality of integrated primary and behavioral health care through evidence-based practices, community collaboration, and a comprehensive approach to care coordination. This payment system will benefit adults with serious mental illness, children with serious emotional disturbance, individuals with chronic addiction, and others diagnosed with mental health or substance use disorders.

“Our staff is working tirelessly on the CCBHC implementation,” explained Joseph Masciandaro, President and CEO at CarePlus. “The payment system is a breath of fresh air in the midst of an intense funding atmosphere, and we are grateful for this opportunity to continue to provide the most effective and comprehensive care for those that we serve.”

Through this bulk funding, there is a unique coverage of activities that historically have not been included for reimbursement, including: services provided outside of the organization, telehealth, peer services, and many essential social services supports.

“CarePlus has advanced experience in care coordination and health management solutions,” Masciandaro stated.
