Coordination of Care for Persons with Substance Use Disorders under the Affordable Care Act: Opportunities and Challenges

August 30, 2012

This report reviews the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and existing literature to consider what opportunities and challenges this new law and the extant scholarship present regarding enhanced integration/coordination of substance use disorder (SUD) treatments into the health care delivery enterprise. Given the high concentration of SUD morbidity and treatment that falls under the purview of local to federal government oversight, this review focuses on Medicaid and other public programs that administer medical care to substantial populations with SUDs.

This study was funded by bSAS, the public substance use authority in Baltimore City. Also related to this project is Subgroups of Medicaid Clients with Substance Use Disorders, a presentation given in February 2012.
