Behavioral Health Billable Hours - Rules are revised to limit the number of hours that outpatient behavioral health rendering providers can be reimbursed to 35 hours per week. Without the recommended revisions, ODMHSAS is at risk of exhausting its State appropriated dollars required to maintain the State's Medicaid Behavioral Health Program.
