Designing Care Management Entities for Youth with Complex Behavioral Health Needs

Bookmark and Share

Youth with complex behavioral health needs face a range of challenges and often receive services from multiple agencies that do not always coordinate services and care plans. Care Management Entities (CMEs) are designed to coordinate services provided by state agencies, and ensure services are comprehensive and not duplicative. This new Implementation Guide provides information about the CME design process for states interested in implementing or improving CMEs for youth with complex behavioral health needs. The guide focuses on experiences of the three CHIPRA quality demonstration states, Maryland, Georgia, and Wyoming, who are using funds to implement or expand CMEs.
