Re:       Community-Based Behavioral Services Handbook - Reissue


The Department is re-issuing the Community Based Behavioral Services (CBS) Handbook. Updates are identified in the Revision History of the handbook. 

The Community Based Behavioral Services Handbook contains information and guidance for providers who provide Medicaid Rehabilitation Option – Mental Health (MRO-MH) and Targeted Case Management (TCM) services, as detailed in 89 Ill. Adm. Code 140.453, to customers in the Department's Medical Programs. 

The Department will be hosting a webinar on Wednesday, July 13th from 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM to overview the handbook updates and to address provider questions. The webinar is free and open to the public but requires advance registration (register here). A recording of the webinar will be available for those unable to attend and will be posted to the HFS website within thirty (30) days of the webinar.
