1. Eligibility Groups

    Individuals eligible for DHS/DMH funding of their mental health services may fall into one of the following categories:
    1. Eligibility Group 1: Individuals who are Medicaid Eligible and in need of mental health services for a mental disorder or suspected mental disorder;
    2. Eligibility Group 2: Individuals who are not Medicaid eligible but are in need of mental health services as indicated by their diagnosis, functioning level or treatment history meeting the criteria for the Non-Medicaid Target Population (see below);
    3. Eligibility Group 3: Individuals who are not Medicaid eligible but are in need of mental health services as indicated by their diagnosis, treatment history and age meeting the criteria for the Non-Medicaid First Presentation of Psychosis Population (see below);
    4. Eligibility Group 4: Individuals who are not Medicaid eligible but are in need of mental health services as indicated by their diagnosis and functioning level meeting the criteria for the Non-Medicaid Eligible Population (see below).
      The provision of information through the enrollment/registration of an individual with DHS/DMH establishes which Eligibility Group the individual is qualified for, and an individual's eligibility group determines what services DHS/DMH will pay for and, in the case of non-Medicaid eligible individuals, up to what limits. In addition, an individual's household income and size determines the amount of the DHS/DMH rate for a mental health service that will be paid for by DHS/DMH.
      Individuals who:
      • do not meet the criteria for one of the eligibility groups above, or
      • who are not eligible for Medicaid and whose household income is 400% or greater than the Federal Poverty Guidelines
        are ineligible for payment by DHS/DMH for their mental health services.
  2. Criteria for Eligibility Groups

    a. Eligibility Group 1: Medicaid Eligible Criteria
    • To be eligible for this group an individual must:
      • be in need of mental health services for a mental disorder or suspected mental disorder,
      • have a qualifying diagnosis as listed in the Rule 132 Diagnosis Codes - DMH
      • not be enrolled in the Illinois Healthcare and Family Services' Integrated Care Program,
      • be enrolled/registered with DHS/DMH, and
      • be currently eligible under the state's Medicaid program.
    • Community mental health service agencies will need to document the need for mental health services, and they can determine an individual's eligibility status under the state's Medicaid program by requesting this information from the individual. In addition, providers have access to a system to obtain this eligibility information. The Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services maintains a web-based system, the MEDI System that permits determination of an individual's current public benefit status, including their Medicaid eligibility status.

3. Enrollment/Registration with DHS/DMH

In order for a community mental health service provider to receive payment from DHS/DMH for mental health services provided to an individual, it is essential that the individual be enrolled or registered with DHS/DMH. This enrollment/registration process supplies the information necessary to determine the individual's eligibility to receive services funded by DHS/DMH, and the services and amount of services they qualify for. It also is an important component of accountability for state funds and source of information necessary for effective management of a public mental health service system.


DHS/DMH expects the information provided in the enrollment/registration process to be complete and accurate. Failure to supply complete and correct information may lead to the individual being incorrectly determined as ineligible for funding of their services by DHS/DMH, or placed in the incorrect eligibility group.

A critical component of enrollment/registration of individual is entry of their correct State of Illinois Recipient Identification Number (RIN). If an individual does not have a RIN or cannot provide it, community mental health service agencies have access to a system to obtain this information. The Illinois Department of Human Services maintains a web-based system (the "e-RIN System") that permits determination of an individual's RIN or obtaining a RIN for an individual who does not yet have one. This web-site and instructions for its use can be found at: http://www.dhs.state.il.us/page.aspx?item=32574.


Instructions for the process of enrolling/registering an individual with DHS/DMH can be found at: http://www.illinoismentalhealthcollaborative.com/provider/prv_information.htm.

5. Criteria for determination of the amount of the DHS/DMH rate to be paid by DHS/DMH

  1. Income Groups and DHS/DMH payment
    With limited state funding, DHS/DMH aims to support mental health services for individuals who are in need not only clinically, but also financially. To achieve this DHS/DMH has established household income groups based on the current Federal Poverty Guidelines or Levels (FPL). The table on the following page shows these income groups as indicated by an individual's household size and household monthly income.
    This table also shows that the amount of payment from DHS/DMH for a mental health service provided to an individual will be based on the individual's income group. That is, the amount or portion of the DHS/DMH rate for a mental health service that DHS/DMH will pay will be based on an individual's income group as determined by their household monthly income and size.

  1. Determining and documenting an individual's income
    To confirm an individual's household income, the provider must communicate to the individual that in order to have the State of Illinois pay for all or part of the mental health services they receive, the individual must supply documentation of their household income. Acceptable examples of documentation of income are a copy of the most recently filed State or Federal Income Tax Return or any other document indicating the current status of household income (e.g., pay check stubs, W-2 forms, proof of unemployment). DHS/DMH does not require specific income documents. Providers should use their best judgment in obtaining documents that accurately represent household income and size. When a provider is unable to secure income verification from an individual and relies solely on the individual's verbal report, the provider must document this in the individual's clinical record or a separate financial record what attempts were made to secure such information and the reason for the absence of such documentation.
    Zero (0) is a possible and valid entry for household income, but not for household size.
    Documentation regarding an individual's household income and size is to be completed within thirty-days of the individual's first service event.
    Documentation from the individual supporting his or her household income level shall be kept in the individual's clinical record or a separate financial record. Providers are not required to submit such documentation to DHS/DMH but this information is subject to review. DHS/DMH anticipates that this documentation will be reviewed as part of the post-payment review process, and failure to maintain this documentation may result in disallowance of payments and payment recoupment for services to individuals not eligible for Medicaid.
  2. Additional conditions of DHS/DMH payment for services: Individual co-pays and HIPAA requirements
    As a condition of DHS/DMH payment for mental health services for individuals in financial need, DHS/DMH requires that any co-payments from an individual for any service funded by DHS/DMH in whole or in part not exceed the total DHS/DMH rate when added to the amount paid by DHS/DMH; that is, the co-payment is not to exceed the difference between the full DHS/DMH rate for that service and the amount paid by DHS/DMH for the service. Beyond this requirement, DHS/DMH does not prescribe for providers a specific sliding fee scale or co-payment required of individuals receiving mental health services.
    It is also important that individuals receiving services funded by DHS/DMH are fully informed that not only is the State of Illinois, through DHS/DMH, paying for all or part of their mental health services, but that their private health information is being shared with the DHS/DMH. This is a federal regulation requirement under HIPAA. A sample form for this purpose, "Documentation of Consumer Choice to Receive DHS-Funded Services" is available at: 
    http://www.dhs.state.il.us/page.aspx?item=49700 
  3. Exceptions for reporting an individual's household income
    There are three exceptions to the requirement for reporting an individual's household income that can be entered:
    1. Minors between the ages of 12 and 17 seeking outpatient therapy/counseling without the consent of their parents or guardian
      Per Illinois statute (405 ILCS 5/3-501) a minor between the ages of 12 and 17 can receive up to five sessions lasting no more than 45 minutes each of outpatient therapy/counseling (i.e., up to 15 units of this specific service) without the consent or knowledge of their parent or guardian. Providers wishing to submit claims to DHS/DMH for the provision of this service to an individual under these conditions will not have to report the individual's household income, but instead will enter the code for this condition as specified in the MIS Consumer Enrollment/Registration instructions (available at: http://www.illinoismentalhealthcollaborative.com/provider/prv_information.htm)
    2. Household medical debt
      An individual seeking mental health services may be part of a household with income above the 200% poverty level, but with a household combined debt for prior medical expenses (not covered by insurance or other third parties) that exceed 7.5% of the total gross household income. Providers wishing to submit claims to DHS/DMH for the provision of mental health services to an individual from a household with this debt level will enter the code for this condition as specified in the MIS Consumer Enrollment/Registration instructions (available at:
      http://www.illinoismentalhealthcollaborative.com/provider/prv_information.htm)
      When this code is entered, the individual's household income will not be used to determine the proportion of the DHS/DMH rate that will be paid to the provider.
    3. Other exceptions
      If the provider needs for DHS/DMH to pay for mental health services for an individual without that individual documenting or reporting their household income due to exceptional circumstances, the provider will not have to report the individual's household income, but instead will enter the code for this condition as specified in the MIS Consumer Enrollment/Registration instructions (available at:
       http://www.illinoismentalhealthcollaborative.com/provider/prv_information.htm).
      DMH expects that this exception will be used infrequently and not as a matter of course when registering individuals.
      For all three of the above exceptions, DHS/DMH will pay the full DHS/DMH rate for the mental health services provided under the exception.
  • The provider must maintain documentation clearly supporting the exception in the individual's clinical record or a separate financial record. Providers are not required to submit such documentation to DHS/DMH but this information is subject to review. DHS/DMH anticipates that this documentation will be reviewed as part of the post-payment review process, and failure to maintain this documentation may result in disallowance of payments and recoupment.
    1. Updating household size and income information
      DHS/DMH will apply the above requirements, including documentation requirements, for all registrations in FY13.
      For billings or claims submitted for an individual consumer, that individual consumer's enrollment/registration record must reflect their current household size and income and comply with the above requirements, including documentation requirements.
  1. Required information for six-month updates for existing consumers
    DHS/DMH requires that the following fields be updated at least every six months. The updating of these fields at six months intervals will ensure more accurate reporting of the consumer's status and eligibility determination.
    • Income (Household and Client)
    • Household Size
    • Household Composition
    • Education Level
    • Military Status
    • Employment Status
    • Court/Forensic Treatment
    • MH Residential Arrangement
