Revised Notice of Proposed Reimbursement Methodology for
Adult Mental Health Habilitation Services

In accordance with the public notice requirements of 42 CFR 447.205 of the Social Security Act, the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA), Office of Medicaid Policy and Planning (OMPP) publishes this revised notice of the proposed reimbursement methodology for Adult Mental Health Habilitation (AMHH) Services. This revised notice supersedes the notice posted at DIN: 20120516-IR-405120263ONA.

The OMPP proposes to add an administrative rule at 405 IAC 5-21.6 to reimburse Adult Mental Health Habilitation Services. The OMPP will reimburse AMHH Services for consumers who meet specific criteria for eligibility and level of need under an assessment tool approved by the FSSA Division of Mental Health and Addiction. The services are necessary in order for the state to better accommodate individual needs, thereby resulting in improved patient outcomes and satisfaction.

It is estimated that the fiscal impact for the added services will result in an estimated increase in state and federal expenditures of approximately $2,643,115 for State Fiscal Year 2014. The proposed effective date of the addition of the new reimbursable services is July 1, 2013. The proposed rates are expected to be similar to the rates for services offered under the Medicaid Rehabilitation Option, Developmental Disabilities Home and Community Based Services waiver, and Indiana's Community Alternative to Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facilities Demonstration.

The proposed addition of the new reimbursable services will be addressed in a proposed rule that will be published at a later date. A public hearing will be held after publication of the proposed rule. A copy of this notice is now on file at the Indiana Government Center South, 402 West Washington Street, Room W451, Indianapolis, Indiana and is open for public inspection. Also, a copy of this notice is now available and may be inspected by contacting the local county office of the FSSA Division of Family Resources, except in Marion County where public inspection may be made at 402 West Washington Street, Room W374, Indianapolis, Indiana.

Written comments may be directed to IFSSA, Office of Medicaid Policy and Planning, Attention: Judi Coffey, 402 West Washington Street, Room W374, P.O. Box 7083, Indianapolis, IN 46207-7083. Correspondence should be identified in the following manner: COMMENT RE: ADULT MENTAL HEALTH HABILITATION SERVICES. Written comments received will be made available for public inspection at 402 West Washington Street, Room W374, Indianapolis, Indiana.
