Feel free to post any questions you may have here!
what is the Medicaid billable rate for MST
can the youth have their own therapist?
We currently have a team registered in Curry County and would like to expand to serve our other service areas. Would this be a fit for the RFA or would we need to expand to areas farther away from our current location?
Can the funds be used for recruitment of therapists and supervisors?
Besides MST training what are the requirements to be an MST therapist?
Is MST a bundled rate? Are there any service exclusions that cannot be billed in conjunction such as RTC.
Could you speak to cultural and linguistic adaptations of the MST model and how the materials have been used with New Mexico’s diverse populations that look different than SC or the rest of the US?
yes it is bundled. can't be billed in conjuction without a single case agreement from MCO.
Amanda, is your question above asking if they can ALSO have an individual therapist while they are in MST or do they have their own MST therapist?
Yes thank you Amanda!
And thank you Bryce!!
Is there a priority to award areas that are not being served vs areas that are already being served? Even if there is a shortage in a large community?
Are the referrals from legal systems or can clients be screened and recommended for MST based on internal provider Comprehensive Assessments?
How are the surveys implemented? By therapist?
Fee Schedule has both
Do the therapists have to be licensed?
Masters is Master's Degree not license correct?
SO MSW vs LMSW/LCSW
Justin - that is exactly my question also
there is no requirement for licensing (for the individual) from MST perspective. So, for instance, MSW is fine.
I more mean related to the billing aspect and the 75/25
TAM-Rs are primarily completed by an MST call center.
Justin: See above for the billing pdf
The historical initial training used to be two weeks or so right? how is that going to be adapted for COVID? Is it done regionally or still on the east coast?
