6 What are we trying to address through this project?
7 Challenges = Need for Change Rate of growth and demand for services is unpredictable, and with the past few years experience is unsustainable. Challenges with a fee-for-service model of reimbursement –Does not promote or create incentives for an efficient service delivery system –Reimbursement based on volume and number of people served, not outcomes
8 Challenges, continued –Unsustainable growth in expenses, inevitably lead to the need for cost containment measures, which can further erode the community mental health system –The system and the state are continually in a position of trying to do more, with less funding –Need for new strategies to support NHs 10-year Plan –BBHs federal mandate to ensure an efficient and effective service delivery system
