AHCCCS Opens Survey for IMD Providers

AHCCCS is gathering input from providers to assess their capacity to meet the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' (CMS) participation standards for the State Plan Amendment (SPA) and Waiver options. This feedback will inform our decision-making process regarding Institutions for Mental Disease (IMDs). IMD providers are encouraged to complete this survey before Friday, March 6, 2020.

As a result of recently enacted federal law and the CMS policy changes, states now have the option to secure federal funding for longer IMD stays for individuals with substance use disorder (SUD) treatment needs through a SPA or, for IMD stays for individuals with SUD and/or behavioral health treatment needs, through a Section 1115 Waiver amendment.

Take the survey.
