Minnesota, Mayo Contract Addresses Psych Medications for Children


The Minnesota Department of Human Services has entered into a $1.7 million contract with the Mayo Clinic in which the Rochester, Minn.,-based health system will guide primary care doctors when they prescribe psychotropic medications for children.  The program will run for two years and is expected to pay for itself with reduced hospitalizations and medication use in the Medical Assistance program -- the state's version of the state-federal Medicaid public health insurance program.
