The CMS Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation is holding a public summit on September 8, 2017 to explore creating a behavioral health innovative payment model intended to improve health care quality and access, while lowering the cost of care for Medicare, Medicaid, or Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) beneficiaries with behavioral health conditions. The meeting will feature four panel sessions on the following topics:  substance use disorders; mental health in the presence of co-occurring conditions; Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias; and behavioral health workforce development.  Registration is required to participate in the meeting. CMS also will accept written statements or questions until August 25, 2017.
