Concern Expressed about MHSS Growth

July 23, 2012

Because of the rapid expansion of the Mental Health Support Services; DMAS has solicited provider input on possible options and ways to control the growth of this service.  We will offer our suggestions and participate in the coming discussions; we appreciate the opportunity.  In the past, as we all remember, the first reaction had often been to reduce the rates paid to providers to control the growth of a service.  This approach is infinitely better!
