This webinar provides an overview of Medicare and Medicaid behavioral health benefits (including mental health and substance use disorder benefits) for dually eligible individuals and opportunities to improve coordination in integrated care programs. It includes a summary of the new Medicare Opioid Treatment Benefit and implications for state Medicaid programs, as well as information about state options for covering treatment services in Institutions for Mental Diseases (IMDs).

 

Learning Objectives: By the end of this presentation, attendees are able to:

States’ Medicaid Fee-for-Service Durable Medical Equipment Payment Policies

To better inform analysis of existing policies and development of future policies that affect Medicaid payments, the Medicaid and CHIP Payment and Access Commission (MACPAC) released a compendium of each state’s fee-forservice DME policies along with a companion issue brief summarizing payment and coverage policies and issues.

Strategies to Support Dually Eligible Individuals’ Access to Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics, and Supplies

This Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Informational Bulletin provides an additional strategy for states to support timely access to durable medical equipment, prosthetics, orthotics, and supplies (DMEPOS) for people dually eligible for Medicaid and Medicare. The Informational Bulletin clarifies that states do not need to require a Medicare denial for DMEPOS that Medicare routinely denies as non-covered under the Medicare DME benefit.
