Behavioral Health Integration: Kick-Off Meeting
Email from DHMH
As many of you know, on December 27, 2011 Secretary Sharfstein released a letter regarding Maryland's progress on behavioral health integration. In this letter, Dr. Sharfstein explained that one of the next steps for Maryland in deciding how to move forward with behavioral health integration will be for the Department to establish a planning team led by the Deputy Secretary for Health Care Financing to review Maryland's financing and integration options. By September 30, 2012, this planning team must develop a draft approach to integrate care based on the findings in the consultant's report and as refined through a planning process that involves stakeholders.
The kick-off meeting for this planning process will be held in Annapolis the afternoon of March 14 (specific time and location to be determined). The agenda for this meeting is attached. Your feedback regarding Maryland's financing and integration options for behavioral health are very important to this planning team and we look forward to your contribution.
Please look for a more detailed e-mail soon, with more information and materials.
