Working to improve access to high-quality, person-centered care for individuals with mental health, substance use, and trauma-related challenges.
The Alliance for Rights and Recovery envisions a healthcare system that strives to achieve the quintuple aim of healthcare reform:
- enhance the overall health of the people you support
- improve the experience
- reduce cost
- improve the well-being of the provider
- health equity
New York State is in the process of shifting from a fee-for-service reimbursement model to one based on value. The Alliance for Rights and Recovery works with behavioral health providers on Medicaid Managed Care readiness initiatives and will continue this effort as changes to the system of care continue.
Managed Care Technical Assistance Center
The Alliance for Rights and Recovery is pleased to be a partner with the Managed Care Technical Assistance Center (MCTAC) since 2015.
Funded by the McSilver Institute for Poverty, Policy, and Research, our primary role with MCTAC was to ensure that smaller behavioral health agencies who were new to Medicaid reimbursement thrived in the new Managed Care environment. Since then, our role has expanded to provide training, consultation, and resources for all behavioral health providers in New York State with the goal of providing quality services and sustainability in a constantly changing healthcare landscape. We also develop resources and pre-recorded trainings. Our webinars, trainings, and learning communities are available both online and in small, regional, group settings.
MCTAC is funded through the New York State Office of Mental Health and Office of Addiction Services and Supports, and The Alliance for Rights and Recovery works closely with State and key strategic partners to meet MCTAC’s goals.fit into the Managed Care environment.
Managed Care Training & Technical Assistance
In addition to our work with MCTAC, The Alliance for Rights and Recovery provides expert training and technical assistance on Medicaid Managed Care-related topics to behavioral health providers.
Our technical assistance is delivered online, in-person, or by region, and includes information dissemination, infrastructure development, and workforce development that support Managed Care readiness.
Some examples of our technical assistance include working with peer run organizations to learn about Home and Community Based Services and how to help HARP members access these services, working with Performing Provider Systems to help their community-based partners prepare for Managed Care, and training hospital systems to better understand psychiatric rehabilitation services and how they fit into the Managed Care environment.
