The Division of Behavioral Health (DBH), formerly the Divisions of Alcohol and Drug Abuse and Comprehensive Psychiatric Services, sponsored a series of trainings throughout the state on Medicaid Eligibility to assist treatment providers in identifying and facilitating enrollment of individuals who meet basic categorical eligibility criteria for Medicaid benefits. The information provided during the workshop was selected and presented in a manner that should result in more "rapid" Medicaid eligibility determination and enrollment. For more information, please review the training material and links below.
