Dear Association Executives - Please find attached a letter that I sent to day to the National Association of State Mental Health Program Directors, National Association of State Alcohol and Drug Abuse Directors, the National Association of Medicaid Directors and to SAMHSA asking states to begin making interim payments to community behavioral health organizations immediately.We understand how dire the situation is for many of our mutual members and I hope that the ideas and intent expressed in this letter can be helpful to you in your advocacy with your state partners.
Please let us know what else we can do to be of assistance to you.
