Health Care Attorneys Advise Coordinated Behavior Care in Community-Based Mental Health Program
Health care partner Brett Friedman (New York) and corporate associate Scott Falin (Washington, D.C.) advised Coordinated Behavioral Care in a program created to transition adults with mental health needs for short-term inpatient treatment to an ongoing community-based setting.
The program includes a partnership with New York City Health + Hospitals’ Office of Behavioral Health with H+H sponsored Performing Provider System OneCity Health.
Under the program, OneCity Health will invest more than $4 million to implement new models of care to reduce avoidable hospitalizations and lengths of stay. The investment will fund new services including aftercare planning, transition needs assessments, assistance with food and filling prescriptions and accompaniment to primary care visits.
