Today the Senate Mental Health committee will take up Senator Fletcher Hartsell's Behavioral Health Management bill. This proposed legislation would permit new 1915 (b)(c) waiver sites to incorporate under a hospital statute instead of the current 122C state statute. A major concern of advocates is that this might permit the new waiver sites to not have CFACs and will remove oversight from the department. We will have more information regarding this bill later today.
Here is the bill:
SB 465 Behavioral Health Management
