Revenue Cycle Intelligence - August 23, 2018

The recently announced Integrated Care for Kids (InCK) initiative will require Medicaid and local providers to develop alternative payment models to combat the opioid crisis for children. To address the opioid crisis affecting children, The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) intends to use the InCK initiative to support physical and behavioral health integration for the pediatric population. One in three children in Medicaid and CHIP has some type of behavioral need, but one one-third of these individuals receive care, the federal agency reported.
