Synopsis: This study aimed to identify unique and effective examples of the Comprehensive Community Mental Health Services for Children and their Families Program grantee sites using Medicaid to achieve sustainability by paying for community-based, individualized, behavioral health services and to describe these practices in the context of States’ Medicaid Plans. The study findings identified creative and pioneering approaches to Medicaid as a mechanism to fund system of care services for children with serious emotional disturbances and suggested strategies useful to state-level systems administrators and grantee sites’ program directors for developing sustainability plans.
