The Department of Health and Human Services is completing an evaluation of alternative service delivery models that aim to achieve better care for patients, better health for our communities and lower costs through improvement in our health care system.
Health care reform and the expansion of the Medicaid program provided an opportunity for many Nevada citizens to obtain health care coverage. Now the focus must be shifted from enrollment and coverage to quality health outcomes and sustainability. The state is looking for ways to ensure the services delivery system is patient centered and focused on integrating all of the patient’s medical, behavioral health and social needs.
Managed care models often allow additional flexibility in the delivery of services that is not allowable under the tradition Fee for Service Medicaid Model. Often allowing for a more integrated and person centered approach to service delivery.
