Notice of Proposed Reimbursement Methodology for Child Mental Health Wraparound Services Providers


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 notice of the proposed reimbursement methodology for child mental health wraparound (CMHW) services.

The OMPP proposes to add a new rule at 405 IAC 5-21.7 to reimburse CMHW services. The OMPP will reimburse CMHW services for consumers who meet specific criteria for eligibility and level of need under an approved assessment tool of the FSSA Division of Mental Health and Addiction. The services are necessary for the state to better accommodate individual needs resulting in improved patient outcomes and satisfaction.

It is estimated that the fiscal impact for these added services will result in an estimated increase in state and federal expenditures of approximately $10,170,000 for State Fiscal Year 2014. The proposed effective date of this change is July 1, 2013. The proposed rates are expected to be similar to the rates for services offered under Indiana's Community Alternative to Psychiatric Rehabilitation Treatment Facility Demonstration Grant.

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 the OMPP, Indiana Government Center South, 402 West Washington Street, Room W374, Indianapolis, Indiana.

Anyone who wishes to comment on this matter may submit written comments 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: CHILD MENTAL HEALTH WRAPAROUND SERVICES. Written comments received will be made available for public display at the address above of the OMPP.
