Legislative Alert from CSWA: Essential Benefits to be State Based, December 17, 2011
There is a new wrinkle in the implementation of “essential benefits” in the Affordable Care Act, which includes mental health and substance abuse coverage. Instead of creating a set of standards for what the essential benefits should include, DHHS yesterday gave states the responsibility to decide what the actual benefits should be. This means, for example, that a state could define a mental health benefit by outcome, number of sessions, diagnosis, provider type, or any number of other factors, which most states have already done in Medicaid benefits.
