Statewide Standardized Utilization Management (SSUM) Guidelines
The Department of Health Care Policy and Financing (HCPF) has been working with the Regional Accountable Entities (RAEs) to create uniform statewide utilization management standards for assessing for the most appropriate level of care for children and youth referred for residential treatment.
These Level of Care (LOC) guidelines were developed as a companion to national utilization management (UM) standards used by the RAEs to authorize behavioral health services. RAEs will be required to use these guidelines in their utilization management processes starting July 1, 2023.
Currently, the Statewide Standardized Utilization Management (SSUM) Guidelines have information related to residential services – both Qualified Residential Treatment Programs (QRTP) and Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facilities (PRTF). This document will continue to be edited/added to as the RAEs work to create guidelines for additional levels of care.
State Behavioral Health Services Billing Manual
The State Behavioral Health Services Billing Manual (the billing manual) is the coding manual for services covered by the Regional Accountable Entities (RAEs). Please visit the State Behavioral Health Services Billing Manual for more information.
