Medicaid Funding

Using Medicaid Funding for MST

Medicaid funding has emerged as an important part of the MST landscape and is playing a critical role in the financial sustainability of many MST programs across the United States. However, we caution stakeholders about using Medicaid funding as the only funding source due to the potential limitations and challenges of using Medicaid funds to support the model-adherent implementation of MST.

There are many requirements to consider when using Medicaid funding for MST in your community. Some areas of consideration include:

  • Funding for Non-Medicaid Eligible Youth/Clients
  • Staff Training and Program Quality Assurance Requirements
  • Staffing Requirements for Supervisors and Therapists
  • Program Operational Requirements
  • Admission, Exclusion and Discharge Criteria
