What Social Workers Need To Know

Focus on the Major Changes in Health and

Behavioral Health in New York

With the passage of the Affordable Care Act, along with plans to cut costs, better integrate care and identify outcomes, changes are occurring more quickly than anyone has ever seen previously.

In order to help social workers better understand these developments, Currents is featuring three articles on what the Affordable Care Act will mean in New York, how changes in Medicaid and managed care will affect behavioral health, and the rapid expansion of community health centers providing integrated services.

While these articles feature large scale policy developments, their impact on what social workers need to know is enormous. There is no actual dividing line between policy, practice and employment.
