This report has four key components, starting with the national policy context that is shaping the U.S. health and human services market – and by extension the behavioral health market.
There are state-by-state summary analyses of the unique state behavioral health delivery systems that were created using a combination of historical practices, federal and state policy, and market factors over the past years.
The report also looks at behavioral health from the consumer perspective in terms of access to inpatient services, quality of care, and the performance of the health plans in managing these services.
Finally, the report summarizes the results of a first-ever survey of U.S. health plans about their current practices managing behavioral health benefits, and their initiatives to integrate behavioral health into their population health management strategy.
The report and the national survey were conducted in conjunction with Otsuka America Pharmaceutical, Inc. (OAPI), Lundbeck, and the market intelligence team at OPEN MINDS. In addition, an industry advisory board provided input on the report. The report is downloadable at no cost.
