The second in a series of research briefs by the UCSF Community Living Policy Center and the UC Berkeley Health Research for Action Center, this latest research brief examines the efforts of CMC health plans to coordinate behavioral health services for their beneficiaries. The brief describes the progress CMC plans have made toward better coordination of behavioral health services, including new integrated models of care, successful strategies, and ongoing challenges. Data came from 27 interviews with CMC plans, County behavioral health departments, and CMC plans’ behavioral health providers who serve dually eligible beneficiaries.
