The Missouri Department of Mental Health (DMH), in collaboration with the Missouri Health Net Program, is offering the Missouri Mental Health ~ MO Health Net Pharmacy Partnership to evaluate the use of mental health medications and to offer education when opportunities exist to improve prescribing practices. The program, which is adjunctive to other efforts in the state, aims to reduce health-care costs to Health Net patients while improving quality of care.

Principles

The Partnership must:

  • Make use of existing data sets (Health Net and DMH)
  • Be supportive of existing treatment system and providers
  • Be educational in nature
  • Be based on continuously updated best practice guidelines
