Managed Care Updates Include New P&P, Revised Trainings

Key Staff: Courtney Vallejo, LMFT, Director of Managed Care Operations 

By July 1, counties will be able to access on the CalMHSA website a policy and procedure (P&P) for Department of Health Care Services Behavioral Health Information Notice 23-001. Additionally, CalMHSA has posted revisions to the CPT Coding for Direct Service Provider trainings in its Learning Management System (LMS). Staff who have previously taken the trainings prior to these revisions do not need to do so again. 

New Policy and Procedure 

Counties are not required to use the new P&P and are free to edit or use it in any way they see fit; it does not have a corresponding attestation. It will be posted on the Policies and Procedures web page.  

Revised LMS Trainings 

In change logs posted under the links to these trainings, CalMHSA has outlined the revisions that were made. Counties are encouraged to check the change logs regularly so that corrections/clarifications can be communicated to staff and contract providers as necessary. 

Questions about the new P&P and revised LMS trainings can be directed to
