In Committee
Crossed Over
2016-2017 Regular Session
This bill provides for the Commissioner of Human Services to accept an application from a screening service to provide expanded mental health services. The expanded services would be tailored to meets the need of the persons in its geographic area and would include, but not be limited to, establishing a satellite program that is situated in a location separate from a screening service and provides services that emphasize outreach and early intervention. Screening services are public or private ambulatory care services that are designated by the commissioner to provide mental health services including assessment, emergency, and referral services to persons with mental illness in a specified geographic area. The bill also requires the Department of Human Services (DHS) to collect data about the expanded services provided by a screening service, the utilization of the services, and the services to which individuals were referred, if any, after receiving the expanded services. DHS is to issue annual reports, based on the collected data, which would include a review and analysis of the expanded services and any recommendations for improvements.
