Seven new projects

At the June 28th Steering Committee meeting, the WHI leaders formally outlined seven projects: Primary Care Navigation; Care Navigation; Dental Acute Care Expansion; Dental Reduced Fee Program; Streamlining Medicaid Eligibility as a Beta Test for the State; Medicaid Enrollment; and Community Outreach for Medicaid Enrollment. The projects’ goals and objectives were shared by the two committees.

Four additional recommendations remained in the planning phase: PCP Strategies for Mild to Moderate Mental Illness; Mental Health Care Management; County-Wide Substance Abuse Protocol; and Connecting Medicaid Enrollees with PCPs.
