The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) announced the pilot sites for the state’s Section 298 Initiative last week.
Selected pilots are:
Muskegon County Community Mental Health (HealthWest) and West Michigan Community Mental Health in a joint pilot
Genesee Health System
Saginaw County Community Mental Health Authority
The Section 298 Initiative is a statewide effort to improve the coordination of physical and behavioral health services in Michigan. The focus is on payer-level integration of Medicaid-funded physical and behavioral health services. The pilots are expected to be implemented by Oct. 1, 2018.
