Behavioral Health Independent Provider Network Forum

The Behavioral Health Independent Provider Network (IPN) Forum was created for behavioral health providers to engage with and partner collaboratively with the Department of Health Care Policy (the Department) and Financing and Regional Accountable Entities (RAEs). The Department recently published frequently asked questions and answers about key behavioral health initiatives and policies that may impact the IPN.

Phase II of the IPN Collaboration Project Launches

Phase I of this project began in April when the Department of Health Care Policy & Financing (Department) contracted Arrow Performance Group (APG). The Denver-based consulting firm facilitated a collaborative working process between the IPN, RAEs, and the Department. This work aimed at identifying and resolving barriers to delivering behavioral health services to Health First Colorado (Colorado's Medicaid program) members. 
In Phase II of this project, APG will facilitate a collaborative process focused on developing possible solutions to the issues identified during Phase I. As part of Phase II, a Task Force and Action Teams, consisting of representatives from the IPN, RAEs and HCPF, will convene. These stakeholder groups will meet between November and June to articulate solutions to the identified challenges. As the work progresses, regular project updates will be posted on the Behavioral Health IPN Forum webpage as well as shared with the RAEs. A Phase II report outlining the solutions identified will be published in June. In the meantime, read the report to learn more about Phase I findings.
