Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics Demonstration Program: Report to Congress, 2020

Publication Date

This is the fourth annual report to Congress describing results from the Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) evaluation. This report summarizes changes in CCBHC rates and costs from demonstration year one (DY1) to DY2, performance on quality measures in DY1, and the extent to which states provided quality bonus payments (QBPs) to CCBHCs for DY1. Results indicated that total costs, visit days/months, and per visit day/month costs increased from DY1 to DY2, but results varied considerably within and across states. Likewise, performance on the quality measures varied considerably across CCBHCs and across states, with no discernable patterns of consistently higher or lower performance in certain states. In DY1, all demonstration states except Oregon offered QBPs, and four states distributed bonus payments to 26 of 31 eligible CCBHCs for meeting the quality measure performance thresholds. Across states, the amount of QBP funding distributed in DY1 varied, ranging from approximately $500,000 to more than $17,000,000.
