Cogency IPA is a proud participant in the New York Behavioral Health Value Based Payment Readiness Program (BH VBP) which was launched in January 2018 to improve healthcare quality and outcomes for low-income New Yorkers.
Under the leadership of Cogency IPA, and with funding from the New York State Department of Health, the Office of Mental Health, and the New York State Office of Addictive Services and Supports, Cogency has become an Independent Practice Association (IPA) – helping to further our mission of supporting our clients to thrive.
By bringing together community-based primary care, behavioral health, care coordination, recovery, supportive housing and social services, Cogency works to close gaps in care, improve healthcare quality and outcomes, and reduce avoidable use of inpatient and emergency services, which generates savings to New York’s healthcare delivery system.
“This funding will help to improve the integration of behavioral health and physical health care and better serve people with mental health conditions. It will allow behavioral health providers to develop the tools needed to demonstrate the quality of their services and succeed in a value-based reimbursement system”
Agencies within the Cogency IPA network integrate care across the entire healthcare system, providing comprehensive services that address the whole person.
