Abstract
On July 1, 2014, the South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (SCDHHS) amended the referral process for community and facility-based behavioral health services. The requirement that child-serving state agencies be the sole referral source for Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility (PRTF) admissions was removed. The agency Quality Improvement Organization (QIO) continued to prior authorize the admissions. When the state agency involvement requirement was eliminated, SCDHHS assumed financial responsibility for covering the state’s share of these Medicaid-covered services. As a result, the corresponding services that had previously been financed by other agencies using the Institutions for Mental Diseases (IMD) transition funds are now covered by SCDHHS and are reported here accordingly.
