  TAP #2: Medical Financing for Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services for Children and Adolescents Item Preview. This technical assistance report provides an overview of Medicaid coverage policies for mental health and substance abuse services including all the Medicaid financing opportunities available to states to meet mental health and substance abuse treatment : Harriette B. Fox. 1Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services [CMS] and Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration [SAMHSA]. (May, ). Joint CMCS and SAMHSA Informational Bulletin. Coverage of Behavioral Health Services for Children, Youth, and Young Adults with Significant Mental Health Conditions. Rockville, MD: Author. For SSI, Medicaid provides financing for a key set of services for people with severe and persistent mental disorders (including general medical care). Medicaid therefore serves different functions.

The Medicaid program provides coverage to 27 million children under age 18 in the United States. According to the U.S. Surgeon General, while 11 percent of youth have been diagnosed with a mental illness, two-thirds of youth who have a condition are not identified and do not receive mental health service. Research by the National Institute on Mental Health found that half of all lifetime cases. This TIP, Treatment of Adolescents With Substance Use Disorders, updates TIP 4, published in , and presents information on substance use disorder treatment for adolescent clients. Adolescents differ from adults both physiologically and emotionally as they make the transition from child to adult and, thus, require treatment adapted to their needs. Medicaid is the single largest payer for mental health services in the United States and is increasingly playing a larger role in the reimbursement of substance use disorder services. Individuals with a behavioral health disorder also utilize significant health care services—nearly 12 million visits made to U.S. hospital emergency departments in involved individuals with a mental disorder, substance abuse problem. Substance Use Disorders (SUD) impact the lives of millions of Americans in the general population, including individuals that are enrolled in the Medicaid program. Nearly 12 percent of Medicaid beneficiaries over 18 have a SUD, and CMCS is committed to helping States effectively serve individuals with SUDs. On average, people die every day as result of a drug overdose.

On the basis of this growing evidence base, in , the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a federal. On Octo , the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), in conjunction with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Assistant Secretary of Planning and Evaluation (ASPE), awarded a total of $ million to support 24 states in their efforts to improve behavioral health of their citizens.   The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) recently released a Joint Informational Bulletin that offers a helpful roadmap to states and schools on the ways certain Medicaid authorities can help support school-based mental health and substance use disorder services for children and adolescents. As part of a strategy to improve the care and outcomes for individuals with a substance use disorder (SUD), the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services invites states to leverage Innovation Accelerator Program (IAP) resources to introduce delivery system and payment reforms that better identify individuals with a SUD, expand coverage for effective SUD treatment, and enhance SUD practices.
