The Future of CCBHCs: Opportunities for Expansion and Lessons Learned From the Field

Congress has extended the Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) demonstration five times and allocated $450 million to date for CCBHC expansion. Due to the program’s continued success, states are exploring opportunities to implement the CCBHC initiative through Medicaid waivers or State Plan Amendments.   Experts with the National Council and Relias will discuss the future of the CCBHC program and how clinics can seize the opportunity to leverage CCBHC status and funding to enhance staff training and clinical operations.

Topics include:

  • The ins and outs of the CCBHC model and why states are turning to it as the ‘gold standard’ of delivery system transformation.
  • Opportunities the CCBHC model presents for clinics—and lessons learned from the first cohort of CCBHCs about how to fully realize those opportunities.
  • What the future holds for adoption of the CCBHC model outside the original demonstration, including recent updates from SAMHSA.
  • How clinics leverage CCBHC status to advance staff training, implement a culture of learning, and support clinicians through the transition in team structure and functions.
