Funding cuts to the behavioral health care system in the Arizona state budget will result in a significant reduction in benefits to Non-Title XIX persons determined to have a Serious Mental Illness (SMI). The changes to the benefits will go into effect on July 1, 2010. Medication benefits as well as therapeutic counseling coverage can be effected, so it’s important to learn how this will impact you if you are in the public mental health system, but don’t qualify for AHCCCS.
NAMI Southern Arizona and Community Partnership of Southern Arizona (CPSA) are co-hosting this meeting to help answer your questions about the recent changes to CPSA’s system of care.
If you are not currently on AHCCCS (Medicaid, Title XIX), staff experienced in determining AHCCCS eligibility will be at the meeting.
A Community Resource List will also be distributed with contact information for a variety of services offered throughout Pima County.
Space is limited. RSVP Required by Monday, June 7th
