WHAT IS INTEGRATED HEALTH?

IHH is a program running in the Siouxland area to address whole health for the mentally ill. As part of a total health process, IHH works to serve the mentally ill to both enhance and extend the life of people who suffer from mental issues. By addressing physical health and wellness, IHH hopes to accomplish long and healthy lives of the mentally ill in the Siouxland area.

INTEGRATED HEALTH HOME PROGRAM

An Integrated Health Home (IHH) is a team of professionals working together to provide whole person, patient-centered, coordinated care for adults with a serious mental illness (SMI) and children with a serious emotional disturbance (SED).

Key Elements of Iowa’s Integrated Health Home Program include:

 

1. Customized “whole health” treatment plans focusing on prevention, early intervention and wellness, including coordinated physical and behavioral health care management.

 

2. Peer support services to encourage the individual’s commitment to recovery and wellness.

 

3. Active coordination between behavioral and physical health providers to improve care.

HABILITATION SERVICES

Habilitation Services is a program to provide Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) for Iowans with the functional impairments typically associated with chronic mental illnesses.

The federal Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 permitted states to offer home- and community-based services (HCBS) as a state plan option effective January 1, 2007. Using this option, the Department worked with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid services to design a program to meet the service needs of Iowans with the functional limitations typically associated with chronic mental illness.

Habilitation Services are designed to assist participants in acquiring, retaining and improving the self-help, socialization and adaptive skills necessary to reside successfully in home and community-based settings.

A person must be enrolled in IHH to receive Habilitation Services.

Adult IHH provides service coordination and monitoring for Habilitation Services.
