Today, the Senate cleared a short-term spending bill that includes an extension of the Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHC) Medicaid demonstration through November 21. The extension is retroactive to September 13. The bill now heads to President Trump for his signature; we will continue to keep you updated.
The latest extension does not impact grantee CCBHCs that are not participating in the demonstration — however, it is an important indication of congressional support for the program and we hope this support will ultimately be translated into an expansion of the program to additional states.
