Changes in Medicaid and Other Coverage: Learn How the CMS Rule Impacts Behavioral Health

0 Comments | Posted

Looks like another great webinar from our friends at the National Council for Behavioral Health. Check it out!

On June 5, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services issued a final rule implementing Affordable Care Act provisions related to eligibility, enrollment, and benefits in Medicaid, the Children’s Health Insurance Program, and the health insurance marketplace. The CMS final rule specifies what information must be included on notices to applicants, beneficiaries, and enrollees. It provides additional guidance to states on the design of Alternative Benefit Plans that must cover all essential health benefits starting on January 1, 2014. The rule explains exemption from enrollment in Alternative Benefit Plans for persons with serious mental illnesses and substance use disorders. Read the final rule at the Federal Registry. And join the webinar to learn how the changes affect your organization. Presenters review Alternative Benefit Plans and the potential impact on coverage for addictions and mental health services as well as other key features of the final rule and offer guidance on next steps that provider organizations must take.
