Rep. Seth Grove, chair of the House State Government Committee, has reintroduced legislation that would eliminate Pennsylvania’s HealthChoices behavioral health carve-out and instead integrate physical and behavioral health care into one managed care program. On Thursday, his bill (HB 1940) was referred to the House Health Committee.
In 2018, RCPA wrote a position paper in support of continuing the behavioral health carve-out. In 2019, RCPA signed onto a letter from the Coalition to Preserve Behavioral HealthChoices opposing what was then HB 335.
