Behavioral Health Crisis System Memo for Standard Plans
While the implementation of managed care has been suspended as legislative action is needed to move forward, the Department of Health and Human Services continues to work on the design of Standard Plans and Behavioral Health and Intellectual Developmental Disability (I/DD) Tailored Plans.
The Department is releasing a Behavioral Health Crisis System Memo for Standard Plans. This memo details Standard Plan requirements and expectations related to crisis services across a range of areas, including crisis services plans, covered services, provider contracting and reimbursement, and the requirements for transition of care between Standard Plan beneficiaries and Local Management Entity/Managed Care Organization (LME/MCO) and Behavioral Health I/DD Tailored Plans after their implementation following crises.
Additional guidance and policy papers are available on the Medicaid Transformation webpage.
