Datapoint: Oregon Adds Mobile Crisis Intervention to Medicaid Program

Oregon is launching a first-of-its-kind mobile crisis intervention program for its Medicaid population, according to CMS. Medicaid beneficiaries experiencing substance abuse or mental health issues will be able to contract a behavioral health specialist 24 hours per day. CMS said these programs can reduce costs for inpatient mental health treatments and burdens on law enforcement. Oregon currently serves 1,300,577 Medicaid beneficiaries.
