Medicaid directors across the country are serving hard-to-reach populations and contributing to care delivery solutions every day. NAMD is looking to harness their expertise and highlight their successes to help inform what the stronger, more rational American health care system coming out of the pandemic can and should look like. They are proud to share with you Medicaid Forward, a three-part series, with the first focusing on behavioral health.
Created in partnership with Well Being Trust – a national foundation dedicated to advancing the mental, social, and spiritual health of the nation – the Medicaid Forward: Behavioral Health report provides evidence-backed, sustainable policy and program solutions to improve Medicaid members' mental health and well-being and support Medicaid programs during these unprecedented times. The report identifies policy options that would benefit all Medicaid members, as well as specific strategies for children, older adults, individuals who are homeless, individuals who have intellectual or developmental disabilities, and those who are in the criminal justice system. The report is strengthened with real-life examples of communities that have demonstrated these approaches' success from a diverse range of states.
