Medicaid Redesign Initiative

About Medicaid Redesign Initiative Project

In collaboration with the NKI-CECC, we developed a white paper on embedding cultural competence into Medicaid redesign initiatives (health homes and behavioral health organizations). The white paper has been published on the OMH website, has been publicized through a Cultural Competence Matters (below).

This project was part of the Promoting Culturally-Competent Policy Research initiative goal, which seeks to conduct policy-relevant health services research in order to promote the cultural competence of mental health services in New York State.


We invite you to read our Cultural Competence Matters report on this topic: “Racial and ethnic disparities in children’s unmet mental health needs: Problems and strategies.”
