Abstract

The eight-year provider evaluation of the Massachusetts Behavioral Health Program showed positive assessments of care provision, continuing problems in integration of care, high assessments of the clinical review process, high evaluations for administration, and positive ratings compared with other managed care organizations. Changes in provider organizations continue. Substance abuse and mental health providers gave similar ratings, while inpatient providers were more critical than outpatient providers. Ratings in Year 8 were higher generally than in Year 7. The program continues to be a success; however, improvement in several areas continues to be difficult.
