Webinar: Strategies for Connecting Justice-Involved Populations to Substance Use Disorder Treatment
Tuesday, July 30, 2019
2:30-3:30 p.m. (ET)
The CMS Medicaid Innovation Accelerator Program’s (IAP) Reducing Substance Use Disorder (SUD) program area is holding a national webinar on strategies to connect justice-involved individuals to SUD treatment. In this webinar, participants will learn about the high prevalence of substance use disorders (SUD) in the justice-involved population and the intersection of Medicaid in this population. Speakers from Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS) will share strategies the state has used to successfully connect the justice-involved population to SUD treatment, including the use of automated data exchanges to suspend and reinstate Medicaid enrollment, care coordination by managed care organizations and regional behavioral health authorities, and the development of justice-involved targeted investment programs.
