Health Homes in Medicaid: The Promise and the Challenge (Research Brief)
Barbara A. Ormond, Elizabeth Richardson, Brenda Spillman, Judy Feder
With the passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), health care providers and insurers are actively engaged in payment and delivery reform. Much of this reform focuses on integrating primary care and other aspects of health care. Medicaid Health homes, and option to states under the ACA, aims to improve the integration of physical health care needs with the broad range of mental health and social needs for high-cost, high-needs Medicaid beneficiaries. This brief draws on findings from Urban Institute's five-year evaluation of this new model of care, exploring the concept, as well as the challenges that must be overcome to achieve the desired results.
How the CHIPRA quality demonstration elevated children on State health policy agendas (Research Brief)
Nicole Cafarella Lallemand, Elizabeth Richardson, Kelly J. Devers, Additional Authors
This Evaluation Highlight is the fourth in a series that presents descriptive and analytic findings from the national evaluation of the CHIPRA Quality Demonstration Grant Program. The CHIPRA quality demonstration grants have provided a unique opportunity not only to advance child health quality in the short term, but also to link child health quality issues to broader Federal and State health reforms. In this Highlight, we give examples of activities in five States—Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Vermont, and Oregon—and how they used their CHIPRA quality demonstration grants to elevate children's health care issues on their States' health policy agendas.
