The UW Integrated Care Training Program (ICTP) is funded and supported by the Washington State Legislature through the Safety-Net Hospital Assessment, working to expand access to psychiatric services throughout the State of Washington.

The Safety-Net Hospital Assessment Bill

In 2015, the Washington State Hospital Association (WSHA) established the safety net assessment bill, HB 2151, which the House and Senate both passed. The bill provides hospital funding to support services furnished to Medicaid enrollees. It provides about $150 million per year in net benefit to the state and funds ICTP among other hospital-based services.
