Under Section 2703 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (ACA), the Health Home service model is meant to help chronically ill Medicaid and Healthy Michigan Plan beneficiaries manage their conditions through an intensive level of care management and coordination. The Opioid Health Home is centered on whole-person, team-based care, with peer recovery coaches at the center of care.

- Improve patient outcomes and long-term recovery
- Provide efficient, coordinated, and integrated behavioral and physical healthcare
- Increase access to healthcare
- Increase hospital post-discharge follow up
- Create a continuum of care
