The Louisiana Behavioral Health Partnership (LBHP) was the system of care for Medicaid and non-Medicaid adults and children who required specialized behavioral health services, including those children who are at risk for out of home placement under CSoC.  The LBHP began on March 1, 2012 and was managed by Magellan Health Services of Louisiana. On December 1, 2015, the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals integrated specialty behavioral health care services into its existing Medicaid managed care system called Bayou Health at which time Magellan transitiond out of the role of managing the LBHP.  The LBHP included participation of Magellan, OBH, Medicaid, Office of Juvenile Justice (OJJ), Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS), and Department of Education (DOE), who together formed the Partnership.

The LBHP is designed to serve the needs of individuals who comprise one of the following target populations:

  1. Children with extensive behavioral health needs either in or at-risk of out-of-home placement;
  2. Medicaid-eligible children with medically necessary behavioral health needs who need coordinated care;
  3. Adults with severe mental illness and/or addictive disorders who are Medicaid eligible; and,
  4. Non-Medicaid children and adults who have severe mental illness and/or addictive disorders.

Through better coordination of services, the Louisiana Behavioral Health Partnership:

  • Enhanced the consumer experience;
  • Increased access to a more complete and effective array of behavioral health services and supports;
  • Improved quality of care and outcomes; and
  • Reduced repeat ER visits, hospitalizations, out-of-home placements and institutionalizations.
