Dale has written a new policy paper specially designed for New York and MRLC members entitled ““How to Prepare for Healthcare Reform the New York Way”, which will drive his presentation this Thursday. Don’t miss it!


Here’s the program description from NYAPRS’ Edye Schwartz:  

Does anyone really understand how healthcare reform is unfolding in New York with the emerging system of HMOs, BHOs and newly renamed, Health and Recovery Plans or HARPS (formerly SNPs)?

How will these new structures operate and what are the implications for behavioral health providers and people who use behavioral health services? Certainly, some answers to these questions will be decided by the State, but much will be based on how local systems of care organize themselves. It’s both a confusing and exciting time.

Join us as we:

  • Understand in plain English how the Medicaid HMO/BHO/HARPs designs will unfold in New York City and upstate;
  • Learn about the four generations of managed care in order to assess how prepare for and influence the local managed care design in your community; and
  • Explore the concept of a Health Neighborhood and why the development of these neighborhoods is in the critical path of health reform for New Yorkers with behavioral health disorders.
