About COMBINE

COMBINE: Colorado Medicaid Behavioral Health Provider Network brings together Coloradans concerned about the delivery of behavioral healthcare for the Medicaid population. 

The task of providing mental health care falls on a variety of professions, including peers, interns, counselors, social workers, marriage and family therapists, addiction specialists, psychologists, and psychiatrists.  COMBINE offers the provider community information, advocacy, and leadership opportunities. 

Formed as a non-partisan political committee, COMBINE seeks to improve delivery of Medicaid mental health services through state level policy, rule making, and legislation.   The COMBINE political committee contributes to campaigns and issue efforts.
