The Medical Services Administration recently released a final policy that removes the 20-visit limit for outpatient behavioral health services provided to both Medicaid fee-for-service and Medicaid health plan beneficiaries.
The change will take effect for dates of service on or after Oct. 1, 2017, and is intended to increase access and support coordination of care for behavioral health services. Providers may bill only for delivering services that are within the scope of practice of their profession. Members with questions should contact Vickie Kunz at the MHA.
