1915(i) Medicaid State Plan Amendment

During the 2019 legislative session, North Dakota lawmakers authorized the Department of Human Services to create a Medicaid 1915(i) state plan amendment, which will allow North Dakota Medicaid to pay for additional home and community-based services to support individuals with specific behavioral health conditions like mental illness, an addiction or a brain injury.

For adults, these services could include, but are not limited to supports for housing, employment, education, transitions out of homelessness or institutional living and peer support. Potential services for children and youths could include respite care, educational support and transition to adulthood supports. To be considered eligible for services, individuals must qualify for Medicaid or Medicaid Expansion.
