The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) hosted a one-day Summit on Friday, September 8, 2017 at CMS Headquarters in Baltimore. The purpose of the Summit was to discuss ideas for a potential behavioral health model to improve access, quality, and cost of care for beneficiaries with behavioral health conditions. Community health organizations, providers, patient advocacy groups, caregivers, non-Federal organizations, and other interested parties were invited to participate in this forum to present recommendations for payment or care delivery of behavioral health services and share experiences of delivering behavioral health services. The opinions and alternatives provided during this meeting will assist us as we explore the possibility of developing a model to address behavioral health payment and care delivery. The meeting was open to the public. Please check back to this page as materials from the Summit are added.
