The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) approved this state plan amendment on March 19, 2018. The Arkansas Department of Human Services (DHS) intended to establish a new Medicaid outpatient behavioral health services program by July 1, 2018.

High-needs clients must have an assessment before they can obtain services through the new program . . .
