Historical Overview

Established in 1996, the Massachusetts Behavioral Health Partnership (MBHP) was contracted by MassHealth to manage the mental health and substance abuse services for MassHealth Members who select the Primary Care Clinician (PCC) Plan.

Since its inception, MBHP has improved the delivery and quality of healthcare in Massachusetts through Member-directed initiatives, innovative programs for special needs populations, and effective collaborations with providers.

As a result of this success, MBHP was awarded a second five-year contract that began in October 2001. To support integration of healthcare services, MBHP now also provides quality improvement and network management services for both behavioral health (BH) and primary care clinicians.

Our Members
MBHP provides healthcare services to more than 360,000 Members. Of these, more than half are children 18 or younger, including 20,000 children in the custody of the Commonwealth's Department of Children and Families and Youth Services.

Our Providers
MBHP's behavioral health provider network is considered one of the largest of any health plan in the Commonwealth. The network includes over 1,200 clinics, group practices, inpatient units, and individual practitioners. All share a commitment to advancing the quality of mental health and substance abuse services in Massachusetts.

MBHP's extensive provider network ensures that Members receive care at their preferred practice setting and that providers are able to serve the wide ethnic and cultural diversity included in the Member population.
