1015(i) 1AA

Section 1915(i) of the Social Security Act (SSA) gives states the option to offer a wide range of home and community-based services (HCBS) to members through state Medicaid plans. Using this option, states can offer services and supports to a target group of individuals, including individuals with serious mental illness, emotional disturbance, and substance use disorders, to help them remain in the community.

Indiana administers three 1915(i) HCBS programs through the Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) Division of Mental Health and Addiction (DMHA) - Children's Mental Health Wraparound (CMHW); Behavioral & Primary Healthcare Coordination (BPHC); and Adult Mental Health and Habilitation (AMHH).

Children's Mental Health Wraparound

The Children's Mental Health Wraparound (CMHW) program delivers individualized services to children with serious emotional disturbances (SED). The focused nature of the CMHW program is intended to better address the special needs of children and youth with SED.

Before enrolling as an Indiana Health Coverage Programs (IHCP) provider for the CMHW program, a provider must be certified by the FSSA's DMHA. For more information about becoming a DMHA-approved CMHW provider, visit the DMHA's Provider Information page at in.gov/fssa.

Additional program information can be found on the CMHW Services page at in.gov/fssa and in IHCP Provider Bulletin BT201362 on this site.

Behavioral & Primary Healthcare Coordination

This program offers one service called Behavioral & Primary Healthcare Coordination (BPHC) and consists of the coordination of healthcare services to manage the healthcare needs of eligible members. This coordination includes logistical support, advocacy, and education to help individuals navigate the healthcare system, and activities that help members gain access to physical and behavioral health services needed to manage their health conditions.

BPHC providers are DMHA-certified community mental health centers that are actively enrolled with the IHCP. Additional program information can be found on the BPHC page at in.gov/fssa and in IHCP Provider Bulletin BT201416 on this site.

Adult Mental Health and Habilitation

The Adult Mental Health and Habilitation (AMHH) program provides services to adults with serious mental illness who may benefit from keeping or learning skills to maintain a healthy, safe lifestyle in community-based settings. AMHH services are provided for individuals and their families, or to groups of adults living in the community who need help on a regular basis with serious mental illness or co-occurring mental illness and addiction disorders.

AMHH providers are DMHA-certified community mental health centers that are actively enrolled with the IHCP. Additional program information can be found on the AMHH Services web page at in.gov/fssa and in IHCP Provider Bulletin BT201361 on this site.
