The Results We’re Focused On

 

Our Progress Step-by-Step

Over the past two years, we have passed a $60M national bill (with a 10 percent set aside for Collaborative Care); influenced state regulators in Texas, Maryland, and Washington to adopt our network adequacy and parity standards; educated hundreds of employer and insurance representatives and thousands of primary care doctors, psychiatrists, and other medical staff; and launched local pilots and a state-wide Collaborative & Measurement-based Care scaling effort in Texas.

See the readings below for more details about our step-by-step progress as an organization and nation.
