NAMD Letter to CMS Addresses PPS for Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic Demonstration

NAMD submitted comments to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to inform the development of the prospective payment system (PPS) for the certified community behavioral health clinic (CCBHC) demonstration. This demonstration, which was enacted under the Protecting Access to Medicare Act, will be a 2-year pilot project under which eight states will develop a PPS for CCBHCs. In general, NAMD’s comments to CMS focus on aligning this demonstration with existing state initiatives, minimizing the administrative burden and maximizing success for those states interested in leveraging this opportunity to build capacity and advance practice transformation in their behavioral health systems.
