MO Disease Management Projects
The Disease Management (DM) Projects outreach Medicaid-eligible adults who have a serious mental illness or substance use disorder, high medical costs, and are not currently receiving behavioral health services. This webpage contains policy, information, achievements, and reports regarding the MO DM Projects. DM is considered an unofficial outreach component for MO Community Mental Health Center (CMHC) Healthcare Homes (HCH). The CMHC HCHs assist individuals in accessing needed health services and supports, in learning to manage their health conditions, and in improving individuals’ general health by monitoring health conditions, healthcare needs and intervening when health conditions are not properly controlled or managed. HCHs promote and encourage wellness, healthy lifestyles and preventative care, educate and teach persons how to better manage their chronic health conditions, educate agency staff about chronic health conditions and how to manage them, and encourage a population health approach to help improve chronic health conditions for persons served by CMHCs.
