Abstract:

This publication presents major points from a 2004 roundtable convened to discuss strategies for integration of primary care and behavioral health in the context of private health insurance. Roundtable participants included health care leaders with expertise in primary care, mental health and substance abuse services, and public and private-sector health plan policy, purchasing and administration.

It is a companion document to GET IT TOGETHER, the Bazelon Center's report on integration of health and behavioral health care in the public sector.
