(Recorded Workshop) Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) Opportunities in CY2023

Duration: 2.75 hours
Workshop Recorded On: 02/23/2023

CCBHCs are outpatient behavioral health providers that furnish a wide array of mental health and substance use disorder services. They are required to serve all consumers in the community regardless of ability to pay. The CCBHC model promises to expand quickly over the coming years. Because of a recent change in federal law, every State will have an opportunity to apply to take part in the CCBHC demonstration by 2030, whereas currently, only 12 states participate. Additionally, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) has recently issued another funding opportunity for individual grants (“expansion grants”) to clinics to develop a scope of service consistent with the CCBHC requirements. 

In this training, Susannah Vance Gopalan and Carrie Riley will provide in-depth information on the CCBHC program requirements, the CCBHC Medicaid demonstration program, and SAMHSA expansion grants. The presenters will provide an overview of recently issued SAMHSA draft guidance revising the CCBHC certification criteria that will apply in States participating in the Medicaid demonstration. The CCBHC model requires CCBHCs to engage in care coordination relationships with other providers in the community, and the training will place focus particularly on CCBHC care coordination agreements and agreements with designated collaborating organizations (DCOs) that furnish services on behalf of CCBHCs.

Target Audience

  • C-suite leaders within safety net outpatient health organizations (community health centers, community behavioral health entities, etc.)
