Pending House Health and Welfare
Limits the number of hours per day of certain behavioral health services reimbursable by Medicaid and requires that certain information be included on provider claims for behavioral health services.
Comments: The intent of this bill is to decrease fraud, but OPEN is concerned because it puts caps on the only two available rehabilitative services available to children and adults with psychiatric needs. OPEN is also concerned because putting a cap on these services would be illegal, as Medicaid is required to reimburse any services deemed medically necessary.
