Mental Health Transport (APA WF 23-13 & OK SPA 23-0021)

Effective July 1, 2023, the Agency in partnership with the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (ODMHSAS) will seek approval of a State Plan amendment to cover and reimburse for secure mental health transportation to treatment facilities for the purpose of examination, emergency detention, protective custody, or inpatient services. The Department currently provides  these services, required by Oklahoma Statutes, Title 43A Section 1-110, with no federal or Medicaid match. This project would provide reimbursement to ODMHSAS when the service is provided to Medicaid members.
