​​​​​​​Behavioral Health Integration Incentive Program​ Application​

​The objective of the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) Behavioral Health Integration (BHI) Incentive Program is to incentivize improvement of physical and behavioral health outcomes, care delivery efficiency, and patient experience by establishing or expanding fully integrated care in a Medi-Cal managed health care plan's (MCP) network. DHCS has collaborated with our MCPs to roll out a standard, statewide BHI Incentive Program application.

In order to apply, providers must complete and sign the below application and submit it directly to their local MCP no later than 5 p.m. PT on January 21, 2020. The MCP contact list is linked at the bottom of this page. Providers should not send the application to DHCS. Prior to completing this application, it is strongly suggested that applicants carefully review the entire application and other supporting documents that are available at this web site, and consult with their local MCP. If the provider is awarded BHI funding by the MCP, the selected MCP will be responsible for oversight and payment to the provider for meeting the BHI Incentive Program ​milestones, based on their approved application. Complete instructions are provided in the application.​​​


DHCS convened a webinar on Friday, November, 22 2019 at 1:00 p.m. Presentation resources are listed below.
