An Act To Improve Access to Services for Adults with Serious and Persistent Mental Illness
Sec. 1. 34-B MRSA §3613 is enacted to read:
§ 3613. Access to services
This bill establishes the right of an adult with serious and persistent mental illness who is denied access to services by a provider contrary to the terms of the provider's contract with the Department of Health and Human Services to seek department review of that action. If department review does not resolve the matter, the consumer may bring a private right of action in District Court for injunctive relief.
