Psychologists Alert!

A recent Behavioral Health Integration Advisory Committee (BHAC) Meeting regarding Heritage Health involved an initial review of some of the Service Definitions related to mental health service provision. Your review and input regarding these proposed service definitions NOW will help shape the provision of clear and fair practice guidelines. Refer to detailed descriptions of the proposed service definitions (current categories under review: Annual Supervision by LI or Psychologist 09.06.16 through Smoking Cessation 09.06.16) Watch the site for future additions of service definitions, as any changes informed by your input will likely occur by December of 2016. Please consider your areas of practice (e.g. short-term residential, outpatient psychotherapy) and provide inquires for clarifications and/or detailed suggestions. Click here

Email written comments regarding the proposed service definitions to dhhs.medicaidmhsu@nebraska.gov

Your Input Matters!

Lori Lundquist Wall, Ph.D. – NPA Representative for BHAC
