A Health Home is a group of organizations working closely together to provide physical health, mental health and addiction services. The Health Home will assign a Care Manager who brings together all of these services for an individual. A Care Manager will speak with health plans, hospitals, and community-based programs to make sure an individual receives the services they need to stay healthy, out of the emergency room (ER), and out of the hospital. Health Homes can offer enhanced services such as:
- Person-centered Planning
- Setting up & Reviewing Services
- Health Tips
- Follow-up Care
- Family Support Services
To qualify for a Health Home an individual must have a significant behavioral health issue and two or more Chronic Medical Conditions. Chronic Medical Conditions can include substance misuse or dependence or HIV.
