(a) In order to be eligible for payment, CCBHCs must have an approved provider agreement on file with the OHCA. Through this agreement, the CCBHC assures that OHCA's requirements are met and assures compliance with all applicable federal and state Medicaid law, including, but not limited to, OHCA administrative rules, ODMHSAS administrative rules, the Code of Federal Regulations, and the Oklahoma State Medicaid Plan. These agreements are renewed annually with each provider.

(b) Reimbursement is made using a provider-specific prospective payment system (PPS) rate developed based on provider-specific cost report data. The PPS rate varies by category and level of service intensity and is paid when a CCBH program delivers at least one (1) CCBHC covered service, and when a valid individual procedure code is reported for the calendar month. Care coordination services do not trigger a PPS payment when billed alone in a calendar month. For reimbursement purposes, members are categorized as follows, and are assigned to special populations by the State:

(1) Standard population;

(2) Special population 1. This population includes individuals eighteen (18) years of age and over with SMI and complex needs including those with co-occurring substance use disorder (SUD). Individuals between eighteen (18) and twenty-one (21) years of age can be served in either special population 1 or 2 depending on the member's individualized needs; and

(3) Special population 2. This population includes children and youth [ages six (6) through twenty-one (21)] with SED and complex needs, including those with co-occurring mental health and SUD.

(c) Payments for services provided to non-established clients will be separately billable. Non-established CCBH clients are those who receive crisis services directly from the CCBHC without receiving a preliminary screening and risk assessment by the CCBHC and those referred to the CCBHC directly from other outpatient behavioral health agencies for pharmacologic management.

(d) Additional reimbursement may be made to the CCBHC once in the same calendar month as the PPS payment for care coordination provided by CCBHC staff to members who are involved in a drug court or other specialty court program. Physician services provided to these members by the CCBHC are reimbursable using the SoonerCare fee schedule.

(e) Reimbursement rates will be reviewed bi-annually and updated as necessary by the Medicare Economic Index (MEI).
