smh_pages_IHH

This program helps you get service for all your health care needs.

 

The goal is to help you live a healthier life by focusing on your “whole health.”

WHAT IS WHOLE HEALTH?

Whole health is your entire well-being. When health care providers consider your physical and mental health at the same time, it is called “integrated care.” They focus on your total health needs.
This includs:

  • Physical health
  • Mental health
  • Social support needs

As a person eligible for Medicaid, you can receive these integrated health care services. It is a new way of caring for your total health. Being in the program does not change your Medicaid benefits; it simply adds to them.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF INTEGRATED CARE?

the Integrated Home Health program:

  • You will have the same behavioral health provider you have now. This person will coordinate services to improve your overall health and make sure you get the right care.
  • You will have a primary care provider (PCP). The PCP will work with your behavioral health provider. They will discuss things like your medications to help avoid bad interactions. It will be easier for you to schedule your appointments.
  • You will have peer support services. Peer support specialists are people who live well with mental illness and have been trained to offer peer support. They may work with people alone or in groups. They understand your emotional, social and community needs. They can help you find services. It may be possible for them to go with you to appointments with the PCP.

HOW DOES THE PROGRAM WORK?

You will get a health and wellness screening. This will help your providers understand you and your unique health needs. You will learn more about your overall health.
Your health care team will focus on meeting your needs. They will share information to get a complete view of your health.

Your team will work together to:

  • Manage your physical and behavioral health services.
  • Create a whole health treatment plan just for you.
