BHQIP Resources for Counties

The Department of Health Care Services created the Behavioral Health Quality Improvement Program (BHQIP) to support implementation of the California Advancing & Innovating Medi-Cal (CalAIM) initiative. BHQIP is structured as an incentive program, allowing a mental health plan, Drug Medi-Cal State Plan, or a Drug Medi-Cal Organized Delivery System to earn incentive payments by achieving certain CalAIM implementation milestones.

CalMHSA is providing technical assistance and subject matter expertise to county behavioral health plans toward achieving select BHQIP deliverables in the areas of payment reform, documentation redesign, policy implementation and data exchange.
