Substance Use Disorder System Reform

  • Minnesota Section 1115 Substance Use Disorder System Reform Demonstration (modified: 1 year ago)
    Minnesota is requesting a five year 1115 Medicaid demonstration to strengthen and reform the state's substance abuse disorder (SUD) delivery system by maximizing new federal Medicaid funding opportunities for SUD services provided to patients within intensive residential settings (i.e. Institutions for Mental Disease) that have established referral arrangements with other SUD providers. The state is seeking to test the impact of evidence-based provider referral arrangements and practices on improving SUD outcomes for Medicaid enrollees, while controlling projected Medicaid costs for SUD services in Minnesota. This includes other health care professions like community mental health to ensure all of the recommended levels of care for effectively treating SUD are readily available and integrated into the larger health care system. The federal public comment period will be open from 05-22-18 through 06-21-18.
