Re:       Update to Community Mental Health Services Fee Schedule Effective August 1, 2018
This notice informs providers of an update to the recently published Community Mental Health Services Fee Schedule Effective August 1, 2018.
Providers who are enrolled in IMPACT as a Community Mental Health Center with an existing approved Specialty of Residential may bill Community Support using the modifiers designating MHP (HN) and High Risk MH Program (HK) when the service is delivered in a residential setting. This coding update will replace the previous H2015 HN HE combination and will qualify for the Psychiatric Leadership Add-on of $5.00.
This update is effective for dates of service on or after August 1, 2018, and will be reflected in all future fee schedule and policy manual updates.
Providers that require the addition of the Residential Specialty Code on their Enrollment File may update their Provider Specialty and Subspecialty status through HFS IMPACT Portal.
Questions regarding this update may be directed to the Bureau of Behavioral Health at
