Health Homes provide integration - or close coordination of primary and behavioral health/substance use services. They are most commonly, but not always, focused on serving individuals with one or more chronic health conditions. As defined by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, a health home provides six specific services beyond the clinical services offered by a typical primary care provider:
A medical home can be the facility for a health home, or the health home may be located in another facility, such as a behavioral health practice or community-based organization.
The Health Care Authority is conducting several Requests for Applications to qualify Health Homes. If you are interested in becoming a Qualified Health Home, visit our contracts and grants page.
