Colorado Health Foundation explores integrated care

Is the integration of primary and behavioral health care taking a turn toward the norm instead of the exception in Colorado? The Spring edition of Health Elevations surveys the terrain of integrated care and payment reform efforts in Colorado, pointing to the remarkable progress made so far and highlighting policy changes still needed to win the long battle. Psychologists are being hired to sit next to doctors and dentists, checks are being written for shared savings models, Medicaid has put more than three-quarters of a million clients into case management and health leaders are shaping a $65 million SIM grant to spread the practice. Read how safety nets are leading, not following, for integrated care reforms. Learn how integration looks on the ground. You can even test your lingo knowledge with "Operation Integration."
