The Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) model has been shown to reduce hospitalizations, cut costs and improve employee recruitment and retention for participants. And on top of all that, it can also help set providers up for success in value-based care models.
“CCBHC funds can really help organizations put those building blocks into place for value-based payment success in the future,” Heidi Arthur, the principal of Health Management Associates (HMA), said. “We know that because they’re already demonstrating significant savings, and it’s those kinds of savings that really make the case for targeted investments under value-based payment arrangements.”
Arthur made those comments Thursday during a webinar hosted by her organization. HMA is a health care research and consulting firm that helps clients with a wide variety of projects, including CCBHC applications and implementation.
