Coverage and Delivery of Adult Substance Abuse Services in Medicaid Managed Care

Prepared for the CMS Medicaid Managed Care Information Resource Center

Manatt authored an issue brief for the Medicaid Managed Care Information Resource Center, a project sponsored by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, that explores state strategies with respect to purchasing substance abuse services for adult Medicaid beneficiaries. The brief reviews the current landscape of substance abuse coverage in Medicaid managed care states and the paradigm shift created by the ACA Medicaid expansion in terms of substance abuse eligibility, benefits, and provider capacity. It also discusses current and planned approaches to substance abuse benefit delivery for adults in six states using managed care delivery systems: Arizona, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Mexico, New York, and Washington.
