Behavioral Health Integration into Primary Care: A Microsimulation of Financial Implications for Practices
Evaluates the financial impact of integrating behavioral health services into primary care practices by simulating data using Medicare payments. Compares the potential impact for Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), rural versus urban non-FQHCs in high-poverty areas, and practices in lower-poverty areas. Addresses the costs and revenues for two types of behavioral health integration, the collaborative care model (CoCM) and the primary care behaviorist model (PCBM).
