As states nationwide explore Medicaid health homes as a viable solution to addressing the needs of individuals with multiple chronic conditions, there are many lessons to be learned from Missouri, one of the first states to implement Medicaid health homes and the first state to implement health homes for populations with serious mental illness. What can we learn from Missouri’s first year of implementation, where they enrolled 17,000 individuals? How has this model of integration and health delivery improved coordination and service delivery?

Want to know what system and organizational transformation worked and how you can take steps to prepare for Medicaid health homes? Whether you work in a state with an approved Medicaid 2703 health home proposal or not, you’ll learn some of the steps Missouri took and the measurable outcomes that have been achieved.
