On April 29, NAMD sent a letter to leadership of the Senate Finance Committee and the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee addressing Senators’ efforts to improve the nation’s behavioral health system. In particular, NAMD praised the Committees for their consideration of lifting restrictions on federal Medicaid payments for services provided in Institutions for Mental Disease (IMD). NAMD also raised issues for Committee consideration related to the certified community behavioral health clinic (CCBHC) demonstration, specifically the need for states to be granted authority to utilize the full range of reimbursement and care coordination strategies under the demonstration.
