5.1.3
Non-LMHAs are private providers of both mental health (MH) case management and MH rehabilitative services, but they are not LMHAs. They must comply with all applicable federal and local laws and all of the regulations that are related to the services they provide. After receiving approval for enrollment in Texas Medicaid, the Non-LMHA provider must be credentialed by a Texas Medicaid managed care organization (MCO) to provide services to Texas Medicaid clients.
Non-LMHA providers also must register to use the DSHS Clinical Management for Behavioral Health Services (CMBHS) clinical record-keeping system before providing services to Texas Medicaid clients.
