Evaluation of AHCA Medicaid Behavioral Health Program

About the Project

With funding from Florida’s Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA), faculty Institute-wide have participated in the evaluation of an important expansion of Medicaid managed care to cover mental health services, including enrollees with disabilities. In collaboration with the Policy and Services Research Data Center (PSRDC), faculty engage in multiple studies that include qualitative implementation analysis, administrative data analysis, and a population-based mail survey of prepaid mental health plans; examination of racial and ethnic disparities in health outcomes; and examination of special targeted issues that have yielded important findings for researchers and policy makers in Florida and nationally.
