Mental Health Engagement in Care: Beginning 2014

Mental Health Engagement in Care: Beginning 2014

New York State is moving Medicaid behavioral health services from a fee-for-service system into Managed Care.

OMH Medicaid Behavioral Health Measures were developed to help monitor the transition of mental health services from a fee-for-service to behavioral managed care.

The MH Engagement in Care dataset displays percentages of Medicaid discharges for members 6-64 years of age who were hospitalized in an inpatient setting with a primary diagnosis of mental illness that were followed by two or more outpatient visits, intensive outpatient encounters or partial hospitalizations for mental health treatment within 30 days of discharge.
