The Connecticut Behavioral Health Partnership (CTBHP) is a working collaborative between the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (DMHAS), the Department of Children and Families (DCF), the Department of Social Services (DSS), Beacon Health Options and a legislatively mandated Oversight Council. Beacon Health Options serves as the contracted Administrative Services Organization (ASO) for the CTBHP.  The CTBHP is designed to create and provide timely access to an integrated, high quality behavioral health service system for Connecticut’s Medicaid populations, including Husky A, B, C (Aged, Blind and Disabled) and D (Low Income Adults). 

Goals of the Connecticut Behavioral Health Partnership:

  • Provide access to a more complete, coordinated and effective system of community-based behavioral health services and supports;
  • Support recovery and access to community services, ensuring the delivery of high quality services in order to prevent unnecessary care in the most restrictive settings;
  • Enhance communication and collaboration within the behavioral health delivery system and with the medical community, thereby improving coordination of care;
  • Improve provider network access and quality; and
  • Recruit and retain traditional and non-traditional providers.
