FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Will I have to change doctors?

No. Our Integrated Health Home team will work with the Doctors, Specialists, Behavioral Health and Service providers that you currently have to help you improve your overall health.

Will my services change?

No. This service is an addition to your other services. In the State of Iowa, you may be required to participate in an Integrated Health Home Program in order to access some mental health services, such as Habilitation Services.

Getting Started

Upon referral to our agency, an individual and/or their family will meet with our Care Coordinator to complete the intake process. At this time, the Care Coordinator will determine if the person is eligible for our Integrate Health Home Program.

Eligibility

All services are voluntary. An Individual must want to actively participate in the service. To be eligible for our Integrated Health Home Program, a person must be:

·          Medicaid eligible

·          Diagnosed with Mental Illness or Severe Emotional Disturbance

·          Living in Appanoose, Decatur, Lucas, Monroe, Ringgold, or Wayne County 

There is no wrong door for access to support services. If you are not eligible for our Integrated Health Home Program, our Care Coordinator can assist you in determining what other programs you may be eligible for.

If we feel your needs will be better served by another Integrated Health Home Program, we will facilitate your referral to the program of your choice.
