The purpose of SB5157 is to focus the health care authority's purchasing efforts on providing incentives to its contractors to reverse the trends and achieve the outcome of reduced criminal justice system involvement for public health system clients with behavioral health disorders.

The performance measures committee must establish measures that track rates of criminal justice system involvement among public health system clients with an identified behavioral health need including, but not limited to, rates of arrest and incarceration; and improvement targets related to these measures.  They must report to the governor and relevant legislative committees by December 1, 2021. 

The authority shall amend managed health care contracts with service contracting entities by July 1, 2022, in order to require contractors to implement mandatory performance improvement projects related to the reduction of individuals with behavioral health needs within criminal justice systems. The authority shall also integrate value-based purchasing terms related to criminal justice outcomes into managed care contracts by Jan. 1, 2023.
