The Information Portal to the North Carolina Mental Health Community
There is an Implementation update site that lists the latest changes to the mental health rules. That site is: http://www.ncdhhs.gov/mhddsas/servicedefinitions/servdefupdates/index.htm
NC has established "workgroups" who meet to update and discuss the changes to the Mental Health System. The CABHA transition workgroup information is located on the DMA website. Go to http://www.ncdhhs.gov/dma/cabha/CABHAWorkgroup.htm to get the latest news from the workgroup.
North Carolina has a CABHA website. It provides the latest information on CABHA from the Department of Health and Human Services. The site is: http://www.ncdhhs.gov/mhddsas/cabha/
The North Carolina Department of Medical Assistance (NC DMA) controls the federal Medicaid funds. It acts as the representative of the Federal government for all federal Medicaid funds. Before NC DHHS can enact changes to the Medicaid funded programs, it must get permission from NC DMA. Once approved, these changes are documented in the "Service Definitions". Each medicaid funded program is individually listed. The service definitions can be found at http://www.ncdhhs.gov/dma/mp/8A.pdf .
The DMA website lists the CABHA programs under Enhanced Mental Health Services. The DMA site is at http://www.ncdhhs.gov/dma/services/enhancedbh.htm
