Changes to Intensive In-Home Service Definition and Rate

The February 2017 NC Medicaid Bulletin outlined some changes to the Intensive In-Home (IIH) service definition and rate. Partners has reviewed this information and IIH teams that are part of the Partners’ Provider Network may begin, effective immediately, to increase the team ratio from 1:8 to 1:12. Effective with dates of service April 1, 2017 and forward, Partners will adopt the new rate of $239.66 as the daily rate.

If you have any questions about these changes, please follow up with your assigned Provider Network Account Specialist.

Your Input Needed: Partners’ Needs Assessment and Gaps Analysis

Each year, Partners conducts a Needs Assessment and Services Gaps Analysis to understand the behavioral health needs of the citizens in the regions we serve. To assist with this process, we want input from every person and from every perspective touched in some way by mental illness, substance use disorders, or intellectual and developmental disabilities.

The survey should only take a few minutes to complete. Want to participate?
