Collaborative Care Education and Resource Guide

As of October 1, 2018, North Carolina primary care practices that provide collaborative care services can now bill Medicaid using the Psychiatric collaborative care management services codes (99492, 99493, 99494). Click here to view this announcement in an NC Medicaid Bulletin from September 2018.

This team-based care approach focuses on a new way to leverage psychiatrists and provide evidence-based management of behavioral health conditions in the primary care setting. In addition to improving access, clinical outcomes, and patient satisfaction, the Collaborative Care Model (CoCM) has also shown a return on investment (ROI) of 6:1. The CoCM’s ability to help manage Medicaid costs for behavioral health conditions and complement the state’s approach to whole-person care (as outlined in the recent Medicaid Request for Proposal for managed care) make it an excellent option for North Carolina.

To date, the American Psychiatric Association’s (APA) Support and Alignment Network (SAN), part of CMS’ Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative (TCPi), has trained over 150 North Carolina clinicians (127 psychiatrists; 29 primary care physicians) in collaborative care.

North Carolina Health Information Exchange 

In 2015, the General Assembly established the NC Health Information Exchange Authority (HIEA), commonly known as NC HealthConnex. The HIE is a secure and electronic network that gives authorized health care professionals the ability to access and share health-related information across the state. The goal is to improve health care quality, enhance patient safety, improve health incomes, and reduce overall health care costs.

This legislation requires providers to have EHR and be connected to the HIE in order to receive any funding from state dollars including Medicaid, NC HealthChoice, and the State Employee Health Plan.
