National Council for Behavioral Health Report: Finding Opportunities for Behavioral Health in ACOs

Worried behavioral health is being left out of Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs)? The National Council recently released a new resource to help community providers, states, and advocates understand the ACO model and how it can be used to best meet the needs of children and adults with behavioral health disorders. The report draws upon what has been learned about Medicaid ACOs and makes
recommendations about how states can ensure that their Medicaid health system addresses the behavioral health needs of all their members.
