Thursday, September 11, 2003

ince 1995, the Health Care Reform Tracking Project (HCRTP) has been tracking publicly-financed managed care initiatives and their impact on children with mental health and substance abuse (i.e. behavioral health) disorders and their families. Drawing on the findings to date, a series of papers, Promising Approaches for Behavioral Health Services to Children and Adolescents and Their Families in Managed Care Systems, highlights relevant issues and approaches that have surfaced through the HCRTP’s all-state surveys and in-depth impact analyses in a smaller sample of 18 states. The papers, available below, focus on a specific aspect of publicly-financed managed care systems and are intended to be technical assistance resources for states and communities as they refine their systems to better serve children and families.
