TO: All DHS/DMH Medicaid Certified Community Mental Health Providers

FROM: Cathy A. Cumpston, Medicaid Officer

Amendments to Rule 132 (59 Ill. Adm. Code 132) were published in the Illinois Register today. It is available online at http://www.cyberdriveillinois.com/departments/index/register/register_volume37_issue33.pdf.

The amendments primarily do two things.

  1. Expand the coverage for deemed status to more standards, see 132.91.
  2. Separate the certification processes so that each component is described separately in an effort to make the requirements clearer.

There is now a 45 day public comment period. Information on how and where to submit comments is included in the Illinois Register.
