Non title 19 SMI persons may be eligible for an array of supported services that may include peer support, family support, living skills training, personal assisatnce, respite care, supported employment, supported housing, respite care and non-emergency transportation to receive covered behavioral health services.
The T/RBHAs will screen members at their next scheduled appointments (all of which will be completed by september 30th or earlier), to determine what level of case management services is medically necessary and behavioral health providers will help members identify which support services will help them achieve their recovery goals.
The T/RBHAs are training their workforces and providers are training peer support specialists who will help provide these supported recovery services. We’ll continue to provide updates on the trainings through this website and this blog.
