Strategies for Integrating and Coordinating Care for Behavioral Health Populations: Case Studies of Four States. A. State Identification


To identify promising states for this project, we contacted Medicaid and behavioral health experts at Mathematica Policy Research, the Center for Health Care Strategies, Technical Assistance Collaborative, National Association of County Behavioral Health and Developmental Disability Directors, and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
