An Integrated Health Home (IHH) is a team of professionals, including family and peer support services, working together to provide whole-person, patient-centered, coordinated care for adults with a serious mental illness (SMI) and children with a serious emotional disturbance (SED). This includes individuals currently receiving Targeted Case Management (TCM) and Case Management through Medicaid funded Habilitation. Care coordination is provided for all aspects of the individual's life and for transitions of care the individual may experience. The IHH is required to assist individuals with their paper work and guide them through the application process for benefits for which they qualify. The IHH is required to coordinate all services for an individual, including medical, behavioral, and community services regardless of the funding sources for those services.
