This presentation details the implementation of a statewide model for mental health service delivery throughout Colorado. The model includes a direct to home tele-health model that is developed in conjunction with Rocky Mountain Health Plans, as well as a direct-to-clinic and direct-to-hospital tele-therapy and tele-psychiatry model. This model has been created as a result of a collaboration between Medicaid Regional Accountable Entity (RAE) Rocky Mountain Health Plans, service delivery provider Heart Centered Counseling, and a number of local and rural primary care clinics. The model gives rural clients access to over 150 behavioral providers, both clinical therapists and psychiatric NPs, offering 7-day access to care regardless of insurance payor or behavioral health issue.
