Studies summarized by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) show that the cost for patients with both a chronic disease and behavioral comorbidities may add as much as 50% to the total cost of care unless properly managed. These behavioral comorbidities contribute to additional cost in a variety of ways – poor self-care, inconsistent compliance, and behaviors that contribute to progression of the disease. IHI recommends that behavioral health be integrated within primary care for patients with chronic disease and behavioral comorbidities. Doing so has been shown to reduce costs between 10% and 15% even accounting for the additional costs of behavioral assessment and therapy.
For entities that absorb financial risk for managed Medicaid and Medicare Advantage programs, the cost and effectiveness of disease management becomes mission critical.
The advent of fee-for-health and at-risk models of care have created direct imperatives for integration of behavioral and medical care and a powerful motivation to use behavioral health approaches to address disease management.
