Call to Action!  We are asking Idaho Behavioral Health Providers to join our network now to be ready to serve Medicaid members quickly and efficiently in the future.

  • Sign a Contract – The strongest statement you can make now in supporting our efforts is to sign a contract. This non-binding contract will be followed by a fee schedule when the State of Idaho has released the details for the plan. Signing a contract now will reduce your administrative burden when the Medicaid plan is being implemented.
  • Sign a Letter of Intent to Provide Medicaid Service– If you are not ready to sign a contract now, please let us know that you intend to sign a contract when we are awarded the Idaho Behavioral Health Plan next year.

Additional support can be offered by writing a Letter of Support offering your recommendation of BPA Health and the Collaborative as we work to increase access and improve outcomes for recipients of these publicly funded services.

If you would like to provide us with feedback on how Idaho’s Medicaid population can be better served, please fill out our Provider Questionnaire.

About the Idaho Behavioral Health Collaborative Updated
Details  
BPA Health has teamed with Beacon Health Options, Blue Cross of Idaho, and the Idaho Suicide Prevention Hotline to bring national expertise and trusted relationships to Idaho's Medicaid population. This relationship effectively aligns the best organizations, programs, and people to tackle the difficult issues that have plagued Idaho's Medicaid delivery system for years.  Our goal is to address the challenges of access, rising costs, and increasing quality expectations while focusing on strong community collaborations, member and family engagement, patient health outcomes, transparency, and evidence-based practices. Among the four organizations is nearly 155 years of combined behavioral health experience.
