Behavioral Health Homes
Behavioral health care providers
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (ACA) created an optional health home benefit so that states could better coordinate care for Medicaid enrollees with chronic conditions. Behavioral Health Homes (BHH) are Minnesota’s version of the federal health home benefit for enrollees in the Minnesota Health Care Programs, Medical Assistance. A BHH operates under a “whole person” philosophy, ensuring access to and coordinated delivery of primary care and behavioral health services for adults with serious mental illness and children with serious emotional disturbance.
Note: Duplicate services such as assertive community treatment, mental health-targeted case management, health care home, relocation service coordination and vulnerable adult developmental disability case management are not permitted for members receiving BHH services.
