The Oregon Behavioral Health Support Program ensures that adults in Oregon with severe and persistent mental illness (SPMI) are actively involved in directing their treatment through person-centered care planning.
We work with eligible individuals to create person-centered service plans. We follow up with them quarterly to determine how their plans are working and if they’re receiving the services and supports they need.
This work also includes:
- Providing needs assessments and person-centered service planning for individuals transitioning from secure residential treatment facilities or the Oregon State Hospital
- Supporting the Behavioral Health Personal Care Attendant (State Plan Personal Care) program by conducting a similar assessment and service planning process, while enrolling State Plan personal care attendants to assist individuals in this program
- Performing continued stay reviews for people in the Oregon State Hospital and secure residential treatment facilities
- Providing authorizations for fee-for-service individuals in crisis respite settings
Providers, please submit your prior authorization (PA) requests via MMIS.
