What They’re Watching: Scott Monteith, Beacon Health Options


Eli Kirshbaum


In this edition of our “What They’re Watching” series, Scott Monteith, Regional Medical Director for Beacon Health Options, says one of his top priorities is integrating physical and behavioral health care. He’s also focused on promoting value-based payment models and supporting the integration of information technology, credentialing processing, and other tasks that comes along with care integration.

He added that Beacon has been working with the state on its approach to behavioral health policy.

“The state is right now going through a process of figuring out what their efforts are going to be in the behavioral health space, and we look forward to supporting the choices that are made by the people at the State of Michigan around behavioral health.

We bring a tremendous amount of resources to bear, based on our experience in nearly every state in the country, as well as federal programs—for example, the military—that extend beyond the borders of the United States.”
