Why is integrated behavioral health important?
Integrated health combines primary care and behavioral health maintenance and treatment. It’s an important and emerging approach to improve and reduce the cost of health care and treatment.

This is due to the expansion of the Primary Care Medical Home (PCMH) model and other funding initiatives that reimburse primary care practices for better managing their patients’ complete health care.
