The bill requires the statewide care coordination infrastructure to
include a cloud-based platform to allow providers that do not utilize an
electronic health record to actively participate in the care coordination
The bill requires the behavioral health administration (BHA) to:
  • Ensure navigators are available through the statewide care

coordination infrastructure website and mobile application,
as well as in specific regional locations; and
  • Utilize behavioral health administrative service
organizations to help individuals and families initiate care
and ensure timely access to services.
To implement the care coordination infrastructure, the bill requires
the BHA to train new and existing navigators on behavioral health safety
net system services, behavioral health service delivery procedures, and
social determinants of health resources; ensure that the care coordination
infrastructure can direct individuals where to seek in-person or virtual
navigation support; ensure that the administrative burden associated with
provider enrollment and credentialing for navigators and care
coordination providers is minimal; and include a summary of outcomes
for individuals who access the infrastructure in the BHA's annual report.
For the 2022-23 state fiscal year, the bill requires the general
assembly to appropriate $12.2 million from the behavioral and mental
health cash fund to the department of human services for use by the
behavioral health administration for the care coordination infrastructure.
