Event Navigation

Meeting Overview

The Alliance of Community Health Plans (ACHP) Behavioral Health Collaborative, Clinical Collaborative and Quality Leaders met concurrently on May 24 – 25 in San Diego, California. The Behavioral Health Collaborative provides behavioral health leaders at ACHP member plans a forum for rapid learning and an opportunity to play an integral role in informing ACHP programs. The meeting agenda addressed an array of topics including value-based payment, addressing the social determinants of health, recent policy issues, strategies to address opioid abuse, fraud, waste and abuse and the Make It Ok and Hilarious World of Depression initiatives. James Schuster, M.D., Community Care Behavioral Health (CCBH), UPMC Insurance Division and Lindsay Arrington, ACHP serve as leaders of the collaborative. Our thanks also to Judy Feld, M.D., formerly of Independent Health for her contributions to the collaborative over the years. With Dr. Feld’s departure, there is now an open leadership position with the behavioral health collaborative. ACHP will be reaching out to collaborative members about potential interest and for thoughts on strategies to keep the collaborative engaged.

Meeting Materials

In preparation for the meeting, we compiled a set of pre-reading materials, all of which relates to the topics on the agenda. These materials are designed to set the foundation for our discussions and will be referenced throughout the meeting to help provide perspective and guide insights.

There are two types of materials: “Recommended” and “Further” reading. We ask that you read the “Recommended” materials prior to the meeting. The articles designated as “Further Reading” are pieces we think are valuable, but if you have limited time, we would rather you concentrate that time on the recommended materials.

Recommended Pre-reading:
