ABOUT CERTIFIED COMMUNITY BEHAVIORAL HEALTH CLINICS
A CCBHC is a specially-designated clinic that provides a comprehensive range of mental health and substance use services. CCBHCs serve anyone who walks through the door, regardless of their diagnosis and insurance status. CCBHCs integrate additional services to ensure an approach to health care that emphasizes recovery, wellness, trauma-informed care, and the holistic treatment of physical-behavioral health. CCBHC is also a new provider type in Medicaid, therefore, allowing CCBHCs to receive an enhanced Medicaid reimbursement rate based on their anticipated costs of expanding services to meet the needs of these complex populations.
Using the CCBHC model, the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) developed and implemented a CCBHC Certification program (T-CCBHC). Community Centers that are pursuing CCBHC Certification are required to meet specific criteria, as evidenced through documentation, to demonstrate their readiness to operate as a CCBHC before attaining certification or to recertify. The criteria fall into six areas: 1) staffing, 2) availability and accessibility of services, 3) care coordination, 4) scope of services, 5) quality and other reporting, and 6) organizational authority.
