In 2005–2006, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), with guidance from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), jointly sponsored a study to identify the barriers to, and possible solutions for, reimbursement of mental health services provided in primary care settings. The Federal Action Agenda, emanating from the 2003 report of the President’s New Freedom Commission, “Transforming Mental Health Care in America,” includes direct reference to addressing barriers to reimbursement for mental health in primary care. This study, in response to that identified need, was divided into two main efforts to better understand the payment policies and practices that may prohibit or discourage the provision of mental health services in primary care settings.
