A bipartisan coalition of House members introduced legislation this week that seeks to modernize Michigan’s behavioral health system in order to improve services for residents. The plan would redesign the state’s current system with the goal of making it a more person-centered approach. It would replace the state’s 10 public Prepaid Inpatient Health Plans (PIHPs) with a single public or nonprofit administrative service organization. It tasks the Department of Health and Human Services with developing, implementing, and overseeing the core functions of the system. The bills have been referred to the House Health Policy Committee for consideration.
