North Carolina increases behavioral health reimbursement rates

The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services has increased behavioral health reimbursement rates for the first time in a decade.

The department will soon implement the reimbursement rate increases for most mental health, substance use, intellectual and developmental disabilities and traumatic brain injury services across the state, according to a Nov. 15 news release.

The reimbursement rates will support more than 2.3 million people served by Medicaid, along with an estimated 600,000 people who are gaining access to healthcare services through recent Medicaid expansion.
