Collaborative Care Payer Policy Comparative Table – March 2023 Updates

NEW Collaborative Care Multipayer Policy Grid Released – To ease the path to understanding requirements and coding related to collaborative care, MMI has produced a new tool to make it easier for practices to partner PCPs with behavioral health professionals.  You will see that the MMI Participating Payers (BCBSM, Priority Health, HAP and MDHSS) have worked to align policies wherever possible to ease practice administrative burden.  All of the payers use the Washington AIMS Model as a basis for policies and requirements.   Collaborative Care (CoCare) implementation has expanded across the state in the last few years and the grid is intended to serve as a helpful tool for those who have already begun implementation and for those interested in learning more.
