This post has been archived and contains information that may be out of date.

CHA’s Mental Health Law Manual has been updated for 2019, featuring a new chapter on the sometimes conflicting laws governing who is financially responsible for services rendered in an emergency department (ED) to Medi-Cal patients with mental health conditions.

The new chapter reviews Department of Health Care Services interpretations of payment for ED services, provides rationales to help hospitals improve reimbursement for Medi-Cal mental health services, describes mental health services covered by mental health plans and managed care plans, and more.

The authoritative guide to legal issues pertaining the patients with mental health conditions, the Mental Health Law Manual is available in print and electronically. The E-edition provides access to the content from a smart phone or tablet through the free CHA Manuals app and includes a downloadable, individually licensed PDF for desktop/laptop environments (terms apply).
