Grantees: Missouri

Missouri Primary Care Association & Missouri Coalition for Community Behavioral Healthcare 

The Missouri Primary Care Association (MPCA) and the Missouri Coalition for Community Behavioral Healthcare (MO Coalition) jointly applied to the Delta Center. MPCA and MO Coalition plan to build on their past successful work with MO HealthNet, the Missouri Medicaid Department, and the Department of Mental Health.

Missouri transitioned to a state-wide managed care model in 2017. MPCA contracts with three managed care plans through a network contracting entity called MissouriHealth+, and MO Coalition members contract through a similar contracting entity. Both grantees look forward to using this opportunity to explore using their collective leverage together with integrated FQHC/CMHC contracting. MPCA and MO Coalition plan to engage MO HealthNet and a number of joint FQHC/CMHCs in a process to develop a more integrated payment model.
