This 2018 report highlights participating states’ CCBHC activities that have been associated with improving access to a comprehensive range of treatment and recovery support services. The range of services includes delivery of mental health, addiction, and either screening for general medical conditions or onsite access to primary care during the first year of the demonstration. It draws on qualitative findings gathered from interviews at the state level and preliminary data from CCBHCs. The report also details how the eight states that were selected to participate in the demonstration are monitoring the CCBHCs for compliance to the certification criteria. Each of the eight demonstration states, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Oklahoma, and Pennsylvania is profiled in the report to understand their compliance efforts.
Subsequent annual reports to Congress on this demonstration will include data now being collected and reported by CCBHCs in each of the eight demonstration states as required.
