SUPPORT SAME DAY ACCESS FOR PHYSICAL AND MENTAL HEALTH CARE
In California, if a patient receives treatment at a community health center from both a medical provider and a mental health specialist on the same day, Medi-Cal will only cover one of those treatments. A patient has to receive treatment on a different day if they want their second treatment covered. SB 1125 allows local community health centers to bill Medi-Cal for mental health services and other medical services on the same day. SB 1125 is a key bill in the effort to increase access to mental health care for all communities.
SB 1125 WILL BE HEARD IN THE ASSEMBLY HEALTH COMMITTEE ON JUNE 26TH AT 1:30 P.M. IN ROOM 4202.
