As part of its ongoing effort to ensure a continuum of care for MaineCare services, the Maine Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) undertook a study of payments and service delivery models for Intensive Outpatient (IOP) services. Burns & Associates, a Division of Health Management Associates assisted DHHS in this effort and has established this website as a repository for study-related materials.
