SPA 18-0008 Rehabilitation Option requested to be withdrawn

The Division of Medicaid has requested to formally withdraw MS State Plan Amendment (SPA) 18-0008 Rehabilitation Option. SPA 18-0008 had been submitted to allow the Division of Medicaid to refer to the Mississippi Department of Mental Health’s (DMH’s) Operational Standards for specific qualifications of practitioners/individuals and allow Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) services to be provided and reimbursed through a Community Mental Health Center/Private Mental Health Center (CMHC/PMHC) facility. This withdrawal is due to the following: Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) (1) not approving the removal of the requested language for the specific qualifications of practitioners/individuals and (2) not approving the request to include Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) services in the Rehabilitation Option SPA pages.

For more information, read the SPA pages requested to be withdrawn.
