Draft 1915(b) Behavioral Health Waiver Amendment
The health care authority and the department of social and health services intend to submit an amendment to the current 1915(b) behavioral health waiver. If approved, the proposed changes to the waiver would:
Facilitate movement of the North Sound Regional Service Area into a fully integrated model. This region includes Skagit, San Juan, Island, Snohomish, and Whatcom counties.
Add substance use disorder peer support services to the list of state plan services in the 1915(b) behavioral health waiver. This change is contingent upon approval of a state plan amendment adding this service to the medicaid state plan.
Please send all comments and questions regarding this amendment to Richard VanCleave, by phone 360-725-1904 or email Comments are due by January 21, 2019. Please forward this information to any interested party.
