BHCOE will bring providers, patients, and their families together to share their experiences and hold important conversations around advancing the quality of ABA services. By participating in this workgroup, you will have a chance to provide input on what quality ABA services look like and how quality ABA services are measured. This is an exciting opportunity to have a direct and meaningful impact on the field of ABA and the many people impacted by ABA services. Applicants will be selected to represent a diverse and inclusive panel to assure a range of important perspectives are included in the conversation.

Who Are We? BHCOE offers accreditation for organizations that provide ABA services and that meet strict service delivery standards. Our mission is to transform person-centered behavioral health by advancing measurement science, establishing performance-based standards, increasing access to quality care, and leading community collaboration. We are committed to improving the quality of ABA and to ensuring that people who receive ABA services make maximum progress in the areas that matter most to them. We are highly supportive of the industry’s move toward person-centered, value-based care where care quality is rewarded rather than the volume of services provided.

What Will This Workgroup Do? In collaboration with Centene, we will develop quality measures and a value-based payment (VBP) model. Together, the quality measures and VBP model will help to assess the quality of ABA providers and the extent to which recipients of ABA services experience the best outcomes possible.

During the first year, workgroup participants will share their perspective on several quality areas, including:

  • Defining ABA quality
  • Identifying practical and meaningful quality measures
  • Identifying important patient-reported outcomes
  • Developing efficient and feasible data reporting structures
  • Developing models for Value-Based Payment

Why a Quality ABA Workgroup? Because your voice matters! BHCOE understands that providers, patients, and parents/guardians each have a unique perspective on ABA services. Your experiences give you expertise that we do not have. BHCOE wants to make sure that all essential perspectives are included in the Quality ABA Workgroup during this groundbreaking work. We feel it is imperative that our work includes guidance and feedback from the people who it will impact the most.

What Will the Workgroup Look Like?  Our goal is to have comfortable meetings where everyone has a chance to be heard.  Here’s what to expect:

  • The workgroup will have 12 members.
  • We hope to have 3 meetings during 2022.
  • Each meeting will be between 1.5 – 2 hours long.
  • All meetings will happen online using Zoom meetings.
  • There will be different ways to participate in zoom like chat, surveys, and polls
  • Each member can participate as much or as little as they want during the meetings.
  • We will send you reading materials before each meeting for you to review before we meet.

How can I Join?  To participate in the workgroup, you must apply. The application deadline is June 2022. Since the workgroup will only have 12 members, not everyone who applies will be accepted. To apply for the workgroup, please click the link below and provide BHCOE with some basic background information. If you are not in network with Centene and would like to be, please click here.

We will ask some questions to learn more about you. The goal is to create a diverse and inclusive workgroup and these questions are only asked for that purpose. Only necessary BHCOE staff members can see your answers and your answers won’t be shared anywhere else or used for any other reason. All the information you provide will be safely stored and discarded after the workgroup members have been chosen per BHCOE policies. If you have any questions, concerns, or have trouble completing the application, please email to [email protected].
