Medicaid & SCHIP; Managed Care Contracting


This Special Report on mental illness and addiction disorders is part of Negotiating the New Health System: A Nationwide Study of Medicaid Managed Care Contracts, now in its third edition. Negotiating the New Health System is a nationwide point-in-time study of agreements between state Medicaid agencies and managed care organizations (MCOs) offering general or specialized managed behavioral health care products. Each individual edition of Negotiating the New Health System is a point-in-time study or "snapshot" of these agreements for a particular year. However, the current series of editions, taken together, are beginning to form a longitudinal basis for reviewing the evolution of the agreements, for evaluating progress, and for identifying areas needing further work or scrutiny.


Research supported by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), The David and Lucile Packard Foundation, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
