State Launches First Health Home Program Focused on Addiction Recovery
To further combat the opioid epidemic the state has launched its first health home program focused on addiction recovery here in Northern Michigan.
A health home is model of integrated care delivery for Medicaid beneficiaries that coordinates services that are typically not eligible for reimbursement.
The program will provide services to those with Medicaid who have opioid use disorders and are at risk of another chronic condition.
Opioid Health Home recently received approval and will serve Michigan’s northern most 21 counties in the lower peninsula.
According to the MDHHS, Northern Michigan is disproportionately burdened by the opioid epidemic.
The state is partnering with the Northern Michigan Regional Entity PIHP, qualified Opioid Treatment Programs, and Office Based Opioid Treatment Providers in our region.
