MHSS UPDATE

The decision on changes to rates and service units for Mental Health Skill-building services is still pending due to delay in the approval of the State budget. If any changes do occur to the rate and/or service units, DMAS will give providers 30 days notice of the change upon budget approval. This will not happen prior to 7/1/14. Rate/Reimbursement changes will be communicated via a Medicaid Memo.
