On July 7, Medicaid regulations became final and took effect to cover occupational therapy on an outpatient basis in hospitals as well as outpatient behavioral health services including intensive outpatient, partial hospitalization, individual and group therapy. KHA worked with the Department for Medicaid Services to achieve positive amendments to the regulations for these services to be covered in an outpatient hospital setting.
Also becoming effective on that date were new regulations covering behavioral health services and occupational, physical and speech therapy services provided by independent providers.
If you have any questions concerning the new regulations, please contact Nancy Galvagni at KHA (502-426-6220 or 800-945-4542 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org).
