NYAPRS Note: New Yorkers who care about the design that the state is developing for the integration of the behavioral health benefit into Medicaid managed care will want to 'tune in' for this Wednesday morning's meeting of the MRT's Behavioral Health Work Group. At that meeting, NYS and NYC officials will present on the proposed benefit plan (which services), metrics (what outcomes those services must attain) and reimbursement incentives and reinvestment to members of the Work Group and to the public.
