State Appropriations for CMH Non-Medicaid Service:
Adequate to Meet Needs or Alarmingly Low?
September 18, 2014, 3:15 p.m. – Sheraton Detroit Novi
21111 Haggerty, Novi 48375
Sponsored by Mental Health Assn. in Mich. (MHAM)
Representatives of MHAM, the Department of Community Health and the Association of CMH Boards will update the latest information on this important issue and respond to attendees’ questions.
The Legislature’s Fiscal Year-2015 appropriation for CMH non-Medicaid service is $97 million. (Two years ago, prior to the state’s Medicaid expansion, it was $286 million.) As of July, the Boards Association’s projection was that $141 million would be needed for the non-Medicaid population in the coming year.
•Is the amount appropriated satisfactory? If not, how can the situation be remedied? If the appropriation is too low and remains that way, what are the implications for service consumers?
•Does Michigan need to alter its historical model of Community Mental Health purpose and functions? If so, should Michigan have a publicly funded safety net for service consumers with no insurance coverage or ability to pay? What would that look like if CMH were reconfigured?
