PRTF Proposed Policy Open for Public Comment

The Michigan Department of Health & Human Services (MDHHS) released a proposed policy May 30 for public comment related to Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facilities (PRTFs). This policy will create a chapter in the Medicaid Provider Manual specific to PRTF service providers, outlining a process for establishing and operating PRTF facilities in the state of Michigan.

Comments are due to the MDHHS by July 3; however, the policy’s proposed effective date is July 1. To ensure comments are heard, the MHA strongly encourages members to review and comment as soon as possible. The MHA also plans to submit comments and welcomes member feedback to inform the response. Please send any feedback to incorporate into the comment letter to Lauren LaPine no later than Friday, June 9.

Members with questions should contact Lauren LaPine at the MHA.
