Early in 2016, the State of NH was awarded a 5-year federal grant to better meet the behavioral health needs of the population served by Medicaid. The State was divided into seven regional “Integrated Delivery Networks” (IDNs), each of which were then invited to re-design their Medicaid supported services to better address local needs. Antioch’s Center for Behavioral Health Innovation was retained by our regional IDN to help craft a proposal, in collaboration with many other regional stakeholders, that will drive system transformation for the next several years. That proposal was submitted to the NH Dept of Health and Human Services in October. We are excited to be part of this initiative, and eager to see what creative solutions it may bring to the southwest region of the State in the years to come.
