The Minnesota Association of Community Mental Programs (MACMHP) and the Minnesota Association of Resources for Recovery and Mental Health (MARRCH) are pleased to co-sponsor: The Excellence in Mental Health Care Act: A Convening and Listening Session

Join us on 1/6  6-8pm as we welcome Chuck Ingoglia, Senior Vice President, Public Policy and Practice Improvement at the National Council of Behavioral Health to the Twin Cities to discuss the Excellence in Mental Health Care Act. 

More about the legislation: 

On March 31, 2014, Congress passed the Protecting Access to Medicare Act (H.R. 4302), which included a demonstration program based on the Excellence in Mental Health Act. The Excellence Act will increase Americans’ access to community mental health and substance use treatment services while improving Medicaid reimbursement for these services.  

This public discussion will be unique chance to learn more about the impact of the Excellence Act from someone who helped create the policy as well as a chance to connect with other stakeholders about Minnesota’s position as a national leader in mental health care and how our communities could benefit from this  opportunity.  

·         Creates criteria for “Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics” as entities designed to serve individuals with serious mental illness and substance abuse disorders

·         Provides $25 million to states in planning grants to develop applications to participate in a 2 year pilot

·         Stipulates that 8 states will be selected to participate in the 2 year pilot.

You can learn more about the Excellence in Mental Health Care Act on the National Council of Behavioral Health website here.
