CHARLESTON, W.Va.


West Virginia officials are launching an initiative to help Medicaid members with behavioral health diagnoses live healthier and happier lives.

The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources Bureau for Medical Services said it launched the Health Homes initiative for behavioral health on July 1.

As part of the program, a team of professionals coordinates to help manage medical conditions and medications, remember doctor appointments and understand medical tests and results. Teams will also work with doctors, counselors and specialists to support recovery and prevent other illnesses or complications.

The program is available in Cabell, Kanawha, Mercer, Putnam, Raleigh and Wayne counties. Officials say those locations were selected because of the high rates of individuals who are already being treated for behavioral disorders.
