The North Dakota Medicaid 1915(i) State Plan Amendment allows North Dakota Medicaid to pay for additional home and community-based services to support individuals with behavioral health conditions.
In April 2020, the Department submitted the 1915(i) Medicaid State Plan Amendment Application to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for review. The Application describes who is eligible, the process for enrollment, what services are available, what providers can render services, and how quality will be assured.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued its final approval of the 1915i state plan amendment on January 15, 2021. The Department of Human Services plans to have the program available for Medicaid members who qualify by February 16, 2021.
