The Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) is working to identify policy options to accelerate the integration of clinical health and mental health services. Significant research shows that the integration of services improves health outcomes. Given the evolution of behavioral health services in our health care system, the pathway to integration will require careful navigation to assure that options considered recognize the unique roles of federal grant funding, and the role of safety-net providers to assure that vulnerable patients do not experience disruptions in service.
Please join us August 16 as BPC hosts a panel discussion examining the promise and challenges of integrating behavioral health into the broader care system. The panel composed of national leaders in integrating care will examine the existing delivery structure, public and private program financing, practitioner challenges, accomplishments on the ground, and consumer priorities.
