Health and Recovery Plan (HARP)

On May 14, 2018, NAMI Orange welcomed Colleen Sheehan as guest speaker at our education meeting to provide information about the Health and Recovery Program. HARPs are Medicaid Managed Care plans that pay for your physical and behavioral health care. HARP staff, who specialize inbehavioral health (mental health and substance use), are available to listen and work with you.

Colleen also provided information by way of the following links: 

Point of clarity, folks who have both Medicare and Medicaid are not eligible for HARP.
