BHSD Data Collection

Beacon is contracted with all 5 Managed Care Organizations as the single entity to collect Medicaid Behavioral Health Supplemental Data (BHSD) in all Integrated Managed Care regions in Washington State, except for King County. In King County, only WISe contracted providers will be required to submit data for WISe members to Beacon.

Beacon also collects BHSD for Crisis and Non-Medicaid funded services in Southwest, North Central, and Pierce County Washington where Beacon serves as the Behavioral Health Administrative Services Organization (BH-ASO).
