Montana To Invest $80M In Expanded Community Services For Mentally Disabled Residents.

February 4, 2020

The AP (2/4) reports, “Montana plans to invest $16 million annually over the next five years to expand community-based services for people with severe and disabling mental illness” using an existing Medicaid waiver. The funding “will increase the number of people already receiving services from 357 to 750 by 2025.” However, it must still be approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services as part of the “Medicaid Severe and Disabling Mental Illness – Home and Community Based Services Waiver” partnership between Montana and the agency.
