This is the most complete presentation I’ve ever given about EPSDT funding of Behavioral Health Rehabilitation Services (BHRS, mistakenly called “wraparound” services in Pennsylvania for obscure reasons). This model allows a single licensed mental health practitioner to over see a group of professional mental health treatment providers who deliver behavior support and other mental health treatment serivces to children in their homes, schools and communities. Medicaid funds this treatment in all 50 states under the EPSDT mandate that has existed since 1967, and which was made mandatory in all 50 states by the Federal government in 1989. In 36 states, any child who has a mental illness is eligible to receive this funding regardless of family income. This is truly “the greatest treatment funding secret ever concealed.” More information about EPSDT and the BHRS treatment model I created is available at www.ibc-pa.org or www.treatmentplansthatworked.com or http://www.ourcasemanager.pro
Thanks for your interest in this effort to help children get the mental health treatment and behavioral support they need.
