Virginia Governor's Access Plan for the Seriously Mentally Ill (GAP) Demonstration

According to Virginia's application for a new 1115 demonstration, the Virginia Governor's Access Plan for the Seriously Mentally Ill (GAP) Demonstration, will offer a targeted package of benefits for individuals who have a serious mental illness (SMI) and incomes below 100 percent of the federal poverty level. The demonstration aims to enable persons with SMI to access behavioral and primary health care services under a coordinated model to enhance treatment and increase the potential to significantly impact the severity of their symptoms. Through this demonstration, VA will seek to test the hypothesis that coordinating and integrating primary care, specialty care, pharmacy, and behavioral health care for uninsured individuals with SMI, is associated with better health and sustained living for participants who experience improved health outcomes at lower costs to the overall health care system. The federal public comment period will be open from October 22, 2014 - November 21, 2014.
