1915(b) Medi-Cal Specialty Mental Health Services Waiver
California’s 1915(b) SMHS Waiver renewal was approved for a five-year term, July 1, 2015 through June 30, 2020, and includes Special Terms and Conditions (STCs). The STCs are included in the CMS' approval letter below and are geared toward improving program integrity, monitoring and compliance. Among other requirements, the STCs specifically require the publication of MHP performance data (dashboards), Plans of Correction, and Quality Improvement Plans on the DHCS website. In Fall 2019, the Department of Health Care Services will begin a stakeholder engagement process for the development of the next 1115 and 1915(b) waiver renewal applications and program elements.
