Healthy Opportunities Pilots: How Care Managers Can Choose Appropriate Toxic Stress Services within the Healthy Opportunities Pilot Program
This module focuses on understanding how the human service organizations (HSOs) offering toxic stress services will integrate into the Care Management Plans of the Healthy Opportunities Pilots across North Carolina. The module will help Care Managers define trauma and toxic stress, learn about resilience and trauma-informed care, and identify which services offered through the Medicaid State Plan and Healthy Opportunities Pilot may be appropriate given member needs.
Approximate time to complete the course: 90 minutes
Learner content includes: video, corresponding course handouts, and interactive exercises
Participants have unlimited time to complete this course and access course materials.
North Carolina's Healthy Opportunities Pilot program is an unprecedented opportunity to test the integration of evidence-based, non-medical interventions into the state's Medicaid program. The Pilots will provide non-medical services to qualifying Medicaid members across four domains: housing, food, transportation and interpersonal violence/toxic stress. Critically, frontline care managers working in Pilot regions will play an essential role in identifying members that may benefit from Pilot services, recommending appropriate services and coordinating their care.
Join us for webinars designed for frontline care managers at the first 3 CINs to participate in the HO Pilots (essential); other frontline care managers serving Pilot regions are encouraged to attend.
