What is a Health Home?

Why Health Homes and What are the Expected Outcomes?
- Improve health care and health outcomes
- Lower Medicaid costs (over time for children)
- Reduce preventable hospitalizations and ER visits
- Avoid unnecessary care for Medicaid members
- Right service at the right time
- Avoid the escalation of services and costs from unmet needs
We can provide the support you are looking for when your child is experiencing challenging times with his/her health, physical or behavioral.
