Mental Health and Substance Abuse Corporation of Massachusetts will conduct a comprehensive survey to document the reimbursement of emergency behavioral health services, focusing on current programs' experience with third-party payers, and aggregate and analyze the data.  The project will generate information to inform public policy regarding the financing and operation of Emergency Service Programs in the Commonwealth, specifically the Medicaid policy requiring providers to serve all presenting clients, and private insurance reimbursement practices.  The Foundation's grant will pay for a consultant to conduct the study and generate a report to be used in advocacy efforts.
