Healthcare Home

In January 2012, Community Counseling Center began a new program, the Healthcare Home Initiative.  Persons with mental health disabilities often do not have adequate access to primary healthcare.  The program is in the result of a collaborative effort of the Missouri Department of Mental Health and The Center for Medicaid Services.  The program is intended to improve behavioral and primary medical care for persons with chronic mental illness and reduce the average cost of care.

A primary care physician consultant work with our psychiatrists, nurses an case managers in developing a comprehensive “medical” assessment and treatment plan for persons with chronic primary care conditions i.e., hypertension, COPD, diabetes, etc.  Nurses and case managers, together with other team members, will coordinate care and ensure that all of our clients in the program will receive adequate behavioral and primary medical care.
